Mario to Sell Pens??
 
TSN is saying Mario has put the team up for sale...

I dont see the team doing anything with this front office/building stuff going on. Just like no one expects the Saints to do anything untill they finally have some stability...

Here's an article from the PPG this morning.....

Doesn't sound good. But I still feel there will be a deal worked out in the future for the Penguins to remain in Pittsburgh.

Im very confident that they will stay but I cant see them being any good with all this front office termoil... The first step torwards sucess is stability. Look at the other sucessful teams in all sports... The one common factor is stability. The teams that continually change coaches and personel have had no long term sucess what so ever

I feel a deal will be done to save the penguins. They belong here. They can get it done

I agree SteelCity. The plan by the Penguins with the slot license is too good to pass on.

The only thing I'm worried about is if the guy (forget his name) in Station Square get's the slots license and not the Isle of Capri. The guy in Station Square gave Rendall a nice chunk of change when Rendall was running for governor. Something tells me he's the guy Rendall "would like" to give the license to. But suprisingly, the media and fans in general have not brought that fact up nearly as much as they should have in these past few months.

Think of this too..with the slot machines.. the city doesnt come out and support the pens in a big way now.. but now we're asking those same people to go out and spend money on slots that they could be spending outright to support the team now..

just food for thought.
