On Tuesday, August 13th New York Islanders majority co-owner Jon Ledecky hosted about 30 die-hard season ticket holders at the NHL Headquarters in NYC for a luncheon. The fare ranged from fresh sushi to delicious sandwiches as no expense was spared, no detail overlooked.
The timing was perfect. Later that day the Franchise Oversight Board would provide final approval for the Belmont Arena. We are a GO Islander fans!!
But those in attendance got even more than just an Islander feel-good afternoon.
First, Gary Bettman graciously addressed the group and took questions for over an hour.
