The only way that financially struggling franchise will get people to go to games when they jack up their prices after moving to Brooklyn is by having talent. They can't afford free agents, so where are they going to get talent? The draft. Not to mention the league would be livid, and the Islanders are in no position to make enemies with Bettman and friends. Dipietro is also good friends with Wang, Wang will have no problem spending money if it goes to Rick.

It's a nice fantasy though.
