Law & Owners Special Isles Unit: Walsh & Greenwood

Part two of the series. Stephen Walsh & Paul Greenwood were minority owners of the Islanders for about four years. Today, they face much more time than that in prison for bilking retirement funds & universities out of over a billion dollars.

Law & Owners Special Islanders Unit: Roy Boe

Part three in the series. Roy Boe, the Islanders' first owner, unknowingly established their long standing team tradition of being hard up for cash. Boe's mounting debts with the Islanders and Nets caused him to do the unthinkable: sell Dr. J.

Law & Owners SIU: Gluckstern & Milstein

Part Four of the series. Riding in following the criminal Spano Affair, Steven Gluckstern & the Milstein brothers, Howard & Edward, painted themselves as the Islanders' heroes. Instead, they turned out to be full of hot air and, possibly, bacon.

Law & Owners Sp. Isles Unit: Dolan & Steinbrenner

Part Five of the series. Cablevision founder Charles Dolan and Yankees owner George Steinbrenner both kicked the tires on the Islanders at different points in the franchise's life. While neither ever owned the team, the What-Ifs are intriguing.

Law & Owners Special Islanders Unit: John Pickett

Part Six of the series. John O. Pickett was once the Islanders' hero, helping a financially disorganized team into its dynasty era. But after years of neglect & with decisions that still affect it today, he may be among the team's greatest villains.

Law & Owners Special Islanders Unit: John Spano

The seventh and final chapter in the series. John Spano conned the NHL and almost bought the Islanders in 1996. But what seems like a bizarre, isolated incident speaks volumes about the Islanders, their many owners and their abused fanbase.
