Cross Kansas City Off the Islanders' List?

Just found this story on the intertubes...looks like Kansas City is struggling (like much of the rest of the U.S.) to meet their obligations to the taxpayers, so they might have to break their lease with the Chiefs and Royals, giving those teams leeway to move on to greener pastures. The "quote of note" in the article comes from KC Mayor Mark Funkhouser:

"We're trying to focus on services that directly matter to Kansas Citians. For example, our city services, basic services like police. That is a core function. Operating a sports venue is not."

Obviously, this calls into question the availability of a "sweetheart deal" for Charles Wang and his Islanders. If the Lighthouse Project falls through, will Kansas City still be willing (or able) to roll out the welcome mat, as they were prepared to do for the Penguins?
