From the category of "What in the world are the New York Islanders thinking..."
New owner Charles Wang sure has made his mark in his short tenure with the team. He's fired Neil Smith months after hiring him, and even considered hiring sumo reslers for his goalie.
Great quote from SI.COM's Truth's & Rumors section:
Charles Wang once floated the idea of sticking a Sumo wrestler in net to play goalie and many around the NHL nearly busted a gut from laughter. Yesterday Wang stuck a goalie in the GM's office, and the owner who prides himself in thinking outside the box was thought to be outside his mind.
