    Default Islander's sale announcement coming soon??????

    If the rumors are actually true, how long after last nights cup victory do you think Bettman will ask the Isles to wait to announce the sale of the team? I've heard several rumors stating the sale is all but complete, just waiting on the conclusion of the cup finals. To say I'm dying to hear the news is an understatement.

    Yeah I don't understand the hold up either...from all accounts it is a done deal and there's nothing left to do but announce it.

    He must be getting a fortune for the team...why else would you sell now? Right on the cusp of profitability?

    They didn't want to upstage the cup final. Probably best time to sell with new arena deal in place.

    wang has a 75 million dollar loan payment due so the timing is certainly right in that aspect.

    ''Literally, about time: TSN reports that a $75 million loan repayment is due at season’s end, and Islanders Point Blank notes that 15 years is “coincidentally the amount of time an owner has to depreciate the purchase price of a team under IRS tax law.” Uh-huh …''
