This mentality is exactly why there is no NHL hockey today.

FACT, the Nassau County elected officials didn't turn down the proposal made by Wang, it was turned down by the voters 57% to 43%.
First of all, do a little more research than what you read this week on HF boards.

If you did, you would know that Wang had tried for years to work with the councillors to come up with a plan. They kept giving him the run around. Mikhail Prokhorov invited Wang to play in his new arena a long time ago. When Wang could not get any where with Nasseau City Council, he said enough is enough and agreed to move into Barclays Center.

Wangs arena problems has nothing to do with the current reason there is no hockey on.
