NY Islanders landlocked in KC? Not so fast

Kansas City and AEG are working on getting a pro basketball or hockey team for the Sprint Center. That’s what City Manager Wayne Cauthen told The Downtowners lunch club yesterday. He specifically mentioned the New York Islanders. I saved this shaky video from yesterday’s dispatch.


Since the announcement that the Islanders booked an exhibition game at the Sprint Center, there’s been a lot of talk about the team getting landlocked in Kansas City. A lot of people saw the exhibition game as a sign that Islanders owner Charles Wang was fed up with not getting a new or upgraded hockey rink in Long Island.
