Let the story be written: The Town of Hempstead Republicans and Supervisor Kate Murray lost the Islanders and cost the County MILLIONS in lost sales tax money.
Vote her out this year before she causes the team to move!
What a COMPLETE Uneducated MORON.

It was disgusting hearing FatDog on wfan saying the Isles couldn't move to Queens because they'd be interfering with the rag$. The rag$ received a ton of $ from the expansion Isles in 1972--1977 because the Isles were within the rag$ borders per the NHL. The debt has been paid. However, it's too late to start an arena project in the Willets Point area near something bizarre---public transportation. I take it the Isles will move on in a year or two and the few who continue to care about hockey will watch the Devils.
I don't think it is too late for the Citi Field area. It wouldn't have to be right next to Citi Field. It could e near the tennis center and if there is no more space then stick it near Belmont. Hell for years people have complained they barely have time to get to the games on a weeknight. That is slightly closer to the city and has a LIRR stop. Plus there would be barely any conflict with the horse racing season. As far as conflicts with the Rangers/Knicks, if they were allowing the Nets to move to Brooklyn I doubt Queens is any different. To me it just makes too much sense since both locations have the highways and public transportation already built. I really think that Wang wants all of the other crap and the Coliseum is the smallest of projects.

It's great when a man mismanages a team by hiring Milbury and Snow to destroy an organization. Then he asks for a new arena which gets approved, but Wang realizes he still can't make money on hockey even with a new arena, because he will still have the backup goalie running to show. So he demands a shopping mall, nightlife center, lighthouse, and housing.
Hopefully he can make money on one of those ventures.

But knowing Wang, he hire more idiots and all his businesses will go under.

It's hilarious how many people he has fooled. The new arena is approved. Why does he need all the other baloney?

If a pizza owner can't moake money selling pizza, should LI give him a shopping mall, nightlife center, and housing as well?

Is Kate Murray a hockey mom or has she never seen Long Island on the Islanders' jerseys?
Maybe if Ms. Murray stopped putting all her relatives on the payroll, there would be a little more money to spend on a new arena... fat chance, no pun intended.

Hey fans. We only lost by one goal the other night against a good team. So, I consider that a HUGE success. You know if the puck bounced differently once or twice, we might have only lost in overtime. I should be coach of the year!
