Such a storied franchise. It's a shame poor management has put in the crapper for so long.

They can't be moved, right? At least, I wouldn't think the NHL would permit it with a deal for moving to the new arena. I am assuming they have the lease with the Barclays already

If I had the cash, I'd buy the Islanders right now. With proper management, they could become a contender in a year or two.

I'm trying to contain my laughter at the idea that Wang thinks the Isles are worth 300mil. I also think the media is, as usual, full of crap about that idea in the first place.
