Isles won't be free of the Barclay's lease until the yr 2040. I doubt they will look at a 25/26 yr old Nassau arena and think it's a state of the art building and wish to move there.

There's plenty of incentive for Ratner/Wang to want the County to succeed with it's HUB plans.
Steve55 made the point, that Ratner could be trying to help the isles get out of their current arena early. Wang has the incentive of wanting his hotel to do well.
