Is Andrew Barroway The Future Owner of The Islanders?

Update: According to Chris Botta, Barroway is viewed favorably by the NHL after his involvement in the Devils last year.
He very well could be according to a new report from the New York Post.

According to Larry Brooks and Josh Kosman, Islanders owner Charles Wang is in negotiations with the Philadelphia lawyer to sell the team for 225 million plus 75 million if the Islanders hit certain revenue targets.  The news came out late Thursday night from TSN that Wang was in negotiations to sell his majority stake of the team.

If you recall, last summer Barroway was tied to the Devils ownership problems and backed away from the situation after initially making a non binding offer of 170 million dollars.  This wasn't the first time Barroway tried to buy a sports team as he also tried to buy the Philadelphia 76ers in 2011 but was unable to come up with the money.

If this report is entirely true it appears as though Mr. Barroway doesn't want to give up in his pursuit of owning a professional sports team.
