Former Islanders captain and current assistant coach Doug Weight says that while the Coliseum shows its age, it's a great spot to watch a game.
"It's an old building," he says. "It's not, for lack of a better term, easy on the eyes when you pull up to it. There's not a bad seat ... it's loud, it's a great environment, you feel like a part of the game."
