This is due to limited luxury boxes, club seating and corporate partners/support. There’s no incentive for Wang to spend and no revenue anyway. Can't ice an NHL team on AHL type revenue.
If you own an NHL Team, you can be expected to ice an NHL quality team. I have no idea why you do not believe this to be the case, but he does not need "incentive". I do not care how much money he is losing on the Isles, sports team ownership is not always about making money. Charles has enjoyed rubbing elbows, although I wish he had aimed higher than DP and Yashin. Tavares is someone to get excited about, a centerpiece to build a team around. But the owner is bored, no big Tonka trucks are coming to make his dreams come true around the Coliseum.
