Shoulder patch commemorates Isles’ last season at Nassau Coliseum

Aug 22, 2014, 10:00 PM EDT

The 2014-15 season will mark the end of the New York Islanders’ tenure at Nassau Coliseum, so it’s no surprise that the team will find some nice ways to say “Goodbye.” The team shared the shoulder patch the team will wear as part of that final victory lap:

Pretty cool. Apparently they’ll give out pucks with that logo, as well:

As much as their current building draws some rather harsh reviews – sometimes by its tenants, even – it’s been quite a run at Nassau. It’ll be interesting to see how much changes once the team moves from that old barn to a the swanky home of the Brooklyn Nets by the 2015-16 season, but in the meantime, we’ll wait and see if an intriguing team might just give that building a bigger send-off than mere memorabilia.

    So will this be like Jeter’s final year, with each visiting team bringing expensive gifts for the arena?

    And we’re still waiting for the Greatest Islander story.

    I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Nassau Coliseum and Tropicana Field in the same year. I think they’re two of the most beautiful stadiums in the world.

    Incidentally, my favorite color is concrete.

      Awesome stadia. Each is among the top 30 in its league in several categories.
      Incidentally, have you ever visited Concrete, Washington? At least google it. Awesome town. What it lacks in size (pop. 700+) it more than makes up for in, oh, I dunno, other things.

    These new owners can’t rub it in enough that they’re leaving LI. It’s more like an apologetic patch. Saying “Please excuse out appearance as we prepare to get the F outta here after this season”

      Brooklyn is still on Long island lol

      Maybe the Nassau County residents and politicians should have thought about that years ago.

      And I doubt this is the new owners. The sale isn’t even finalized; they have literally zero to do with this patch.
