Wang has tremendous incentive to open his checkbook.
The NJ Nets had not played 1 game in their new home, but the press was reporting 2 months ago that the team is now worth roughly $575 million. That’s 60 percent more than they were valued just last season by Forbes.
Wang's need to sell those luxury suites and premium seating, means he will be opening his checkbook, surrounding his kids with vets more along the line of Ryan Smyth at 30 yrs old, then Doug Weight at 38 yrs old.
You really want to compare the value of a nba team vs an NHL team?
I also am not seeing this new untapped market the Islanders think their moving into. Its not as if hockey has not been available to people in Brooklyn.
