The Islanders die-hards sound just like Fehr... always glossing over the difference between gross revenue and net revenue. The Islanders are losing money, overall. Yeah, Wang gets a honking big cable deal, but gets hammered by low gate. Islanders are 2nd-last in NHL attendance, in an ancient facility.

He already tried, with his "Lighthouse Project", but was stopped by Town of Hempstead.

The only arena in site is Barclay's. To be viable the Islanders would have to...
  • be sold to the owner of Barclay's
  • charge Winnipeg-Jets-like ticket prices for the 2nd-fiddle NHL franchise in the area
