New York Islanders Daily: Howie Rose Likes The New Owners
A look around the web at the most recent New York Islanders news. Make Eyes On Isles your go to website for all things Islanders.
On SNY’s Point Blank podcast, Brian Compton and Mike Carver talked to Howie Rose the long time voice of the Islanders. Howie’s biggest regret is leaving now just as the new ownership is taking over.
"“The biggest regret I have about walking away now is that they are in such good hands with Jon Ledecky and Scott Malkin […] They’re the first owners in almost forever who did not buy the team with ulterior motives. They’re not looking for a real estate deal to piggyback on the back of the hockey club. They want to own a hockey team and run it in a first class manner, and I think finally the fans are rewarded with fully committed ownership and no strings attached, and I’m going to miss that, quite frankly.”"
Howie brings up a fair point. This past summer we crowned it the summer of Jon Ledecky, the guy was everywhere. He said all the right things too, he really is trying to win over the fans.
