If Bruce Ratner and his development group win the rights to develop the Nassau Hub, the Islanders could be playing six games at a renovated Nassau Coliseum after the move to Brooklyn.

The four developer vying for the rights to the Nassau Coliseum property are meeting in Mineola to present their plans to a 17-member advisory board that will help county executive Ed Mangano chose a winner. Ratner’s proposal will turn the hub into a sports and entertainment complex, that would include a 13,000 seat arena.

Among the biggest developments in connection with the Islanders is that they would play six games at the new Coliseum. Forest City Ratner executive Brett Yormark told the panel the Islanders would play six games a year at the new venue and they have received 100 commitments for other events.

Also in attendance for the presentation was hip hop mogul Jay-Z.
