If he gives DP the amnesty buyout he has a hope of making the Isles a slightly more attractive team for selling, though it's true that it's unlikely to be 24 mil more attractive. Still, this absolutely makes them a much less attractive team for any owner who wants to come in and spend and be competitive.
Wang has done nothing to make anyone expect him to do the logical thing ... sucks.

That was one of the great franchises in the league. Hopefully he can sell the team quickly.
