John Spano, as many Islanders fans already know, is not one to always tell the truth. Spending nearly six years in prison after convincing banks a whopping 80 million dollars to purchase the Isles at the franchise’s lowest point, Spano has not been one to follow the law when it comes to economics. You would think one would learn his or her lesson after spending serious time in...

Islanders: Looking Ahead At Cap Situation
