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
Like I said it New York if Wang can't get it working the NHL will force a local sale to somebody who will.
