Really?

Will the extra $35m per season on Barclay's luxury suites, be where he'll lose his shirt'?

The Coliseum would be going from 16,170 seats to 13,000 seats. Maybe that's where Wang loses his shirt?

Or maybe his new deal to stream Barclay's events thru his company NeuLion, is where he loses his shirt?

Sure you do

Again. Which part is where Wang 'loses his shirt'?

1.Will the extra $35m per season on Barclay's luxury suites, be where he'll lose his shirt'?

2.The Coliseum would be going from 16,170 seats to 13,000 seats. Maybe that's where Wang loses his shirt?

3.Or maybe his new deal to stream Barclay's events thru his company NeuLion, is where he loses his shirt?

so.. the Isles are moving to an arena with a U shaped bowl that wasnt designed for hockey and now their old arena is gonna get a mega upgrade and they might play a handful of games there. Great planning there Wang.

I'll believe it when I see it regarding the Isles being a hit in Brooklyn. Have they actually sold $35 million worth of suites for the Isles, or is that just potential?

The arena is only being renovated because the Isles left. There was nothing on the table before they signed that lease... Nassau pols are just that reactionary

But, Ratner looks to have included that 6 game proposal, without clearing it with the NHL or Rangers. No way would the Rangers want to help Ratner's bid and I don't see the NHL wanting the isles playing in a 13,000 seat arena.

The battle to renovate and operate a downsized Nassau Coliseum may be about to get nasty.

Bruce Ratner, one of four who is vying for the job and who is wooing Nassau County executives by promising to play six Islanders games at the 41-year-old arena even after they move to Barclays Center, may not be able to deliver on that promise, The Post has learned.

Madison Square Garden, which owns the NHL’s Rangers and is also bidding on the job, has to approve such a move — and that OK is not guaranteed, sources said.

Ratner took a full-page ad in a local newspaper yesterday touting the six-game slate, calling it “Nassau Like Never Before.”

“You can’t run around playing games wherever you want to,” a sports owner not directly involved in the battle said...

I thought Ratner is trying to bite more than he can chew here anyway. Also it may not make financial sense to play 6 games at the renovated Coliseum since nethat's not going to make up the loss from 6 less games at Barclays.
The Isles will be a force with better management
