The Net Present Value of a buyout for DiPietro at 5% (discounted rate) is ~$17,069,487, while the NPV of a buyout at 9% (more along the lines of the historical increase in the NHL's annual revenues) is ~$13,591,033.
I think the writing is on the wall for a potential sale by Wang, and the DiPietro NPV will just be deducted from the purchase price.
The buyout is less impactful from a financial standpoint for the Islanders than I think some are expecting.
