THE RESURRECTION OF THE KC SCOUTS

 

So the NY Islanders are looking to play an exhibition game next fall in that hockey hotbed of Kansas City MO this way Charles Wang can but the strong arm on Nassau County for his Lighthouse Project and get the arena built.

It has been years since I’ve schlepped to the Mausoleum,  sure it’s no palace but the team has been successful so maybe the problem is not so much the building but ownership. Wang had Neil Smith in place as GM after the Mike Milbury disaster but then decided to undermine Smith by putting in a Gang of Four front office and Smith laughed in Wangs face and said bye-bye.

There is a Mets angle in this story as the Skill Sets pre-Bernie Maddof  put in there bid on that Lighthouse Project and have made no secret that they would like to obtain the Islanders but now it looks like the ship has sailed.

  1. Almost Like The Brooklyn Dodgers in Jersey City, as a bargaining chip-quite similar if you ask me.

  2. Krane, as an Isles’ fan, believe me, I won;t say that they are not looking for money from the county, because I am sure that they are, but at last check, Wang (as well as Scott Rechler of RexCorp) are not looking for the county to pay for it, but to get the OKAY to do. It has been four years, and at this point, I am pretty sure that they just want to know one way or the other.
