But, I read this deal in exactly the way you do. Its a sign that Wang has long term plans for the Isles.
Or if the Hub and Lighthouse become such large dealings that they require his full attention, and he can leave the hockey to the people who understand hockey. Maybe learning somewhere along the way that he should simply hire a good hockey man to run the hockey parts. Who knows, maybe Garth Snow will even make a decent GM if left to his own devices.
