From Chris Botta at Fanhouse.com
"At least six municipalities will line up as suitors and attempt to bring in the New York Islanders if the NHL franchise opens itself up to offers of a new home, a league source has informed FanHouse."
"If Wang authorizes his staff to listen to offers from municipalities outside Nassau County on Oct. 4, it appears he will have plenty of options. As previously reported, leaders in Queens County, New York and Kansas City are two of the Islanders' potential suitors. The source refused to identify the other municipalities that are said to have expressed preliminary interest in being in business with the National Hockey League."
The story goes on to say that Balsillie is not interested in the purchase of the Islanders since he is involved with the purchasing and moving of the Coyotes. This will certainly put pressure on the town of Hempstead to get into gear and into action. From what I've been reading, The town is the ONLY reason that the Lighthouse project is not finalized. Every other branch of State Government, including the Governor, has given the Project the approval it needed. More to come later.
