Steven Gluckstern, part owner of the Phoenix Coyotes, signed a letter of intent to purchase the New York Islanders for an estimated $195 million. Gluckstern's 50% ownership of the Coyotes will help his credibility with the NHL in the process of purchasing the Islanders. If Gluckstern and partners Howard Millstein, Stephen Ross and Dan Doctoross do obtain the franchise from current owner John Pickett, Gluckstern will sell his share of the Coyotes to co-owner Richard Burke.
