AHL Team Owner Howard Dolgon To Explore Buying The Islanders

In the last day, after the news came out of Charles Wang's interest in selling the Islanders the rumors have run rampant as to who potential buyers could be.

Well, according to, Syracuse Crunch owner Howard Dolgon along with a friend is reportedly exploring buying the team.  When asked about his mystery friend, Dolgon told the site that the investor has, "more money than most people."  It is unclear if it will potentially just be the two of them, or if they will have additional investors.

The site reports that Dolgon has had discussions with Wang but had no talks yet with anyone regarding getting in on the bidding.

According to the staff page on the Crunch website, Dolgon, 56, is a graduate of Brooklyn College and a founding member of Alan Taylor Communications, INC.  The 56 year old also has one of his homes in East Meadow.

With Dolgon's ownership in the Crunch, I wonder if this would ever be able to get off the ground floor because of a potential conflict of interests.
