2)Wang would be a fool to lose that huge cable deal. To put it simply if he sell inside NY it worth more than sell for relocation outside.
*3)Wang will kick, scream and moan a for while more but ultimately I believe he will build his own arena. If he can get a city dumb enough to pick up that tab in the New York area so much the better but if he can't that not the end of the world.
*By the way that point also apply to Katz in Edmonton.
Yea i can understand that they would rather stay in that region. With phx possibly staying and islanders staying, that leaves a huge ??? on who via relocation ends up coming to Seattle.
Of course the oilers aren't going anywhere and i'm actually against such an idea of the oilers leaving Edmonton.
