Wang has turned the business side of running the isles, over to the Ratner group. Wang/Snow continue to run the team.
Earlier this month, the Barclays Center unveiled its bid for a revamped Nassau Coliseum, spearheaded by developer Bruce Ratner and CEO Brett Yormark. The plan includes six Islanders games in a new, scaled down 13,000 seat arena back in Nassau County —
with owner Charles Wang’s blessing
— with the hope that the team should stay connected with its Long Island fanbase.
Finally, Yormark told SBJ that the has an agreement in place with an AHL franchise to move into the Coliseum if his group wins the bid, but would not reveal which team he has partnered with.
