Bulletin: Ed Westfall is not Charles Wang

Charles Wang in his Ed Westfall costume? Read the text above for a laugh.

Ed Westfall is a 71-year-old, Ontario-born, Stanley Cup winning former Bruin and beloved ex-Islanders player and broadcaster. Charles Wang is a 67-year-old, Shanghai-born technology entrepreneur, developer and owner of the New York Islanders for the past 11 years.

While it was jarring to see classic Islander Westfall in a new black third jersey from last night's charity unveiling, it was even more jarring to see him mistaken ... for Wang.

We don't typically shame other outlets (except for power rankings or unresearched opinions), but this goof in Puck Daddy's [since-edited] post on the 3rd jerseys was too hilarious not to preserve.

Further research has revealed Bill Guerin is not, in fact, Captain McNulty, and Mike Sillinger -- who like Westfall but unlike Wang, also wore 18 -- is not in fact Sam the Eagle from the Muppets.
