Another Billionaire owner screwing over the fans and throwing hockey history out the window because taxpayers won't finance his business.
It's a racket.
You must have missed the last few years. Seriously? Wang tried LIKE CRAZY to build an arena on THE SAME SITE! Look up the Lighthouse project. There were going to be stores, restaurants, bars, and so on to attract people to the area. Every single thing he tried to do was shot down by the local government. The Isles were basically evicted from the area. Blame local politicians not C. Wang.
Wang should be applauded for keeping the team in NY and on Long Island! He did the best thing available for the fans. He could have easily moved the team to another area.
