New Isles Owner Ledecky Makes Waves In Press Conference

This afternoon, the Islanders introduced new minority owners Jonathan Ledecky and Scott Malkin to the media.  The pair purchased a minority stake in the team in August and will take majority control prior to the 2016/2017 NHL season.

At the press conference today, Ledecky wasn't shy about headline quotes.  At one point he discussed how he was in Pittsburgh for the game this past Saturday and his disdain for the Penguins which he was sure was matched by the fan base.

Additionally, toward the end of the press conference, Ledecky was asked if he could give fans one message what it would be?  Ledecky responded by saying "fifth ring."

Based off todays encounter, it seems like Ledecky could end up being a media favorite in New York.
