The NHL did the right thing by laying down the conditions to keep the team in Pittsburgh. They do not want some Al Davis type of owner.
Bang on Petesburgh.
I'm basically from the same neck of the woods as you are. You must be from Peterborough....I'm 45 mins away if this is where you are from.
Balsillie wanted to move that team...no doubt in my mind.
Pay 175M and then have the League tell you how to run your team?.....lol.
