What scares me, is that maybe some of these goverment officials involved feel that all they have to do is simply "show" that they are "trying" to get a deal done. Whether they stay or leave it will still look like they put up a fight. The only reason why I do not believe that's the case is because it still comes down to a pro-sports team leaving this city on a young Ravenstahl and Onorato's watch. I do not believe they want that on their young resumes.
Anyways, for the most part I've kept a very positive attitude towards these negotiations. I'm still holding out hope that this is simply another example of the Penguins blowing smoke, but I do not believe they are "very close" as that crooked piece of Philly trash would have you believe. If they were "very close" I do not believe that letter would have been sent yesterday.
Eitherway, I still have faith that these two sides will reach an agreement soon.
