Under their TV contract with MSG, the Islanders are getting about $20 million per season in rights fees through 2030-31. So much like the Barclays Center lease and the Rick DiPietro contract, the Isles are seemingly in it for the long haul. Yet as well as MSG does with their overall NHL production and coverage with Hockey Night New York, one would think the Islanders would be better off getting higher priority on another regional network.

Isles don't get $20m per season. They got $20m a few seasons ago. The amount rises sightly each season, ending with $36m in 2030-2031.

It'd be great to see NYI broadcast get higher priority, but I don't see Wang walking away from the remaining $450m or so, that's left on his deal.
