    Wang and Islander's

    Figured we needed a Wang topic since we complain about him an awful lot

    To start off, everyone should read about Pat Lafontaine

    *You

    Maybe many Islander fans are fed up with the teams situation. But Wang SAVED this team many times... Why does he have to do it again? You're out of your mind if you don't think he's done the best he can to keep them in Nassau. it's not his fault it isn't working out. It'll take a miracle at this point. I don't want him to sell, cause ay other owner takes this team and moves them to Canada. We're staying here as long as Wang is around

    Kmo did you even read the article?

    Second im thankful Wang saved us and I am aware he is getting royally ****ed by Nassau so he is pissed.

    But all he had to say was losing isn't exceptable in his fan appreciation speech, let us know he does truly care

    Montreal owner let heads role because how ****** they did this season, why is it ok Montreal to be upset but we can't?

    I never said I wanted snow to go anywhere
    Montreals Owner apologized and said losing is unacceptable , Wang has to much business pride to do so

    You can't blame Wang for not building an arena. It's the town and the people that don't want the Islanders there.

    ^I dont think its the case, its just that people here higher taxs and they no longer care abotut he isles.

    That referendum should never have happened because they dont need the ****ing people's permission to build a goddamn arena.

    The ****ing goivernent raises our taxes on EVERYTHING without our permission, why cant they raise our property taxes 16 more dollars a year to pay for an arena we NEED

    Another problem I have with Wang is the contracts
    The islanders are estimated to have has a cap of 24mill$ if all bonuses were eliminated for 2011-12 season..
    Brock Nelson's contract is 1.9mill in bonuses, a bonus ( like niņo) he will not be able to achieve. His actual cap is 2.9 mill, similar to niņos 3 mill

    Its smart if the islanders were cap strapped... I don't get how Bettman does not do anything about this. I Know it's technically legal, however, it's borderline fraud
