Barroway attorney Simon Miller declined to comment on today's filing by Wang.

Barroway says he "has been working closely with the National Hockey League" on the deal. Barroway signs this letter; Wang does not.

"Dear Charles: As per our discussions of this morning, NY Ice, LLC will purchase 100% of the ownership interests in the New York Islanders."

Barroway then says he wants his next meeting with Charles to be in person "at the time of your choosing." Again, this is 5/23.
