The ball is now squarely in Wang's court. The revenue loss argument is quickly running it's course. Hopefully both the NHL and the Barclay's group put pressure on Wang with the expectations of a quality on ice product.

Contract law is difficult. I would imagine Wang is going to try, but I don't think the Nassau Legislature will let the Isles go that easy. Not without a hefty payout an depending on that amount is Wang game?

If some sort of deal rises for the Coliseum site, maybe that will expedite things, but if nothing rises the County I am sure is in no rush to lose the Isles. The County NEEDS that tax revenue. They're going to be hurting big time after the Isles leave. I don't feel bad for the County, who I do feel bad for are the businesses who are definitely going to suffer.
