Brooklyn Newspaper Suggest Asbestos can Lead to Brooklyn

The Brooklyn Paper is reporting that if the Coliseum asbestos problem isn't fixed by the start of next hockey season the team will be moving to Brooklyn.
A state investigation into claims that the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum — where the New York Islanders’ hockey team plays its home games — is filled with the cancer-causing fiber could bring the team to the $1-billion, asbestos-free Prospect Heights arena if the lethal substance isn’t removed by the start of next season.

It seems like Nassau is going have to put money into the Coliseum otherwise the team might leave Nassau before 2015.  Time will tell if this leads to an Islanders relocation to Brooklyn, or if its the kick in the butt to get Nassau to  renovate the arena.
