Charles Wang, Dead at 74

Recommended Posts

Politics is such a crap fest. Guy wanted to build a new arena with business supporting options at the same time and was told, ?No!? Huge public $ put into ?restoration? of the Mausoleum. Me, ?Oh, you?re going to play some games there again - you don?t say.? And finally a new arena being developed where it belongs ? on Long Island.


Let me repeat...?politics? can be so dumb.

RIP since he was the one that made that terrible decision for the Isles to go to an Arena that was not built for Hockey because LI did not give him the money required to keep NYI on Long Island at the time. In all seriousness RIP


He was willing to fund the overhaul of Nassau Coliseum but the idiot politicians at the time put the squelch on the " Lighthouse " project, Kate Murray in particular. He warned that he would move the team. No one listened.
