Driving home froma party just before midnight last night I was listening to 1050ESPN Radio in NY. A caller was saying he had attended an AHL game held at the Nassau Colliseum last night. On his way out he happened to see Charles Wang, majority owner of the Islanders. He said hello and asked if the arena would host anymore AHL games in the near future.
Wang responded with a smile and said "We are back. They will announce it tomorrow."
I know I know, how much can you trust some schlub on the radio, but the guy sounded like he was in his 50's. I cannot imagine some 50ish guy thinking "wouldn't it be funny to make up a story and call the radio?".
So if it is true, here's the owner of the Islanders being pretty open about a deal having already been done.
