Talks With Suffolk County
COLISEUM: NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, attending Penguins-Islanders last night, would not comment on the Suffolk option, but said the plan is to “work with the existing infrastructure initially and hope that the politicians will step up and do the right thing as it relates to the franchise and the overall economics to having a team here.” Bettman, on Nassau Coliseum: “If there was no team here and somebody came to us and said, ‘We’d like to bring a team to Nassau Coliseum,’ our answer would be, ‘Are you kidding?’” (NEWSDAY, 1/27).
