Tasca's Take

Kicking the Tires

For those of you wondering where the New York Islanders will be playing once the team's lease at Nassau Coliseum expires in 2015, Chicago Wolves owner Don Levin offers this little nugget:

“The answer to the Islanders moving is never. They’re not moving out of that market. No chance that’s going to happen.”

It seems reasonable to assume that Levin, who's leading the effort to bring an NHL team to Seattle, recently asked Islander owner Charles Wang about his interest in selling the club in the near future. 

Sounds like it was pretty short conversation.  Time will tell if Wang's tune will change as more prospective owners start kicking his tires over the next few years.

Should be Don Levin not Nevin.

About Tasca's Take

Tasca's Take is written by Joe Tasca. Born and raised in Westerly, Rhode Island, Joe works as a broadcaster for seven radio stations in southern New England. Whether that's a testament to his on-air ability or because he has a desparate need for money is debatable.

Joe spends his summers playing golf, enjoying the beauty of Misquamicut Beach, and wining and dining girls who are easily awed by the mere presence of a radio personality. During the winter months, he can usually be found taking in a hockey game somewhere in North America. In the spring, he spends much of his time in botanical gardens tiptoeing through the tulips, while autumn is a time to frolic with his golden retrievers through piles of his neighbors’ leaves.
