Ed Mangano announced his latest plan for the Nassau Coliseum site on 10/14, it could mean a new Coliseum on the Northern part of the Hub constructed, or a renovation of the current facility.

The study, which needs state funding/private investment, was from something called Accelerate-Nassau-Now which had images in rough sketches.

NYIFC Comments:
Page eight, nine, ten, fourteen are the sections on the Coliseum. Twenty, twenty one relied on some Lighthouse background information.

Means nothing unless Charles Wang agrees to a lease extension.

New York Notables:
It's obvious DiPietro's concussion will leave him on the sidelines for an undetermined time, as long as, it's not of the Crosby/Vaske variety, with lingering ramifications, it's not of consequence.

The key for DiPietro are his knee issues, and game rust.
Jack Capuano sounded like Scott Gordon at 4-1-2 last October in his post-game, he knows something's not right with his roster even after a 5-1 win. Staios made a great play on Stamkos, the lack of speed on this defense cannot be hidden for many nights.
I did not have clear picture against Tampa, it seemed Comeau was back on right wing, loved what I saw from Hamonic, Bailey, and Martin.
The prospect blog has the updated status for Kabanov.
The long version of what's happened?
Lewiston folds.
Montreal Junior draft his rights in QMJHL dispersal draft.
Montreal Junior change their name to Blainville-Boisbriand Armada.
Islanders send Kabanov to Blainville-Boisbriand Armada after camp.
Blainville-Boisbriand Armada have no apparent roster spot for Kabanov.
Kabanov signs an eight game tryout contract with Farjestd BK SEL on 10/13.
Blainville-Boisbriand Armada trade his QMJHL rights to Shawinigan Cataractes on 10/14.

NYIFC Comments:
The Kirill Kabanov saga leaves him with either an eight game tryout contract with Farjestd in the SEL, or he reports to Shawinigan. Only questions are does the tryout contract obligate him to play in the SEL before going to Shawinigan?
