I was perusing Twitter when I saw this:

Wow.

Not at all a surprise.
Wang only purchased the team as leverage to build up the riverside of Long Island.
Once that new arena and district were kiboshed by city council, there was no reason to keep the team.

I don’t think Wang knew, or cared anything about hockey.
If he did, then he’s a terrible businessman. If he had 1 hockey brain-cell, he would have known better than to employ both Milbury and Snow for as long as he did/has.

I think there is some serious potential with this team; if I had a couple million bucks, I’d consider it.

I agree TreKronor.
That’s why I feel bad for the few true Long Island fans.
This team is going to eventually make some waves and become a serious contender. The problem is they’ll be in Brooklyn by that time.
