Isle of Capri Unsuccessful

The Isle of Capri casino has lost out on its bid to obtain a gambling license in Pittsburgh. The Penguins were banking on them winning the bid and building them an arena free of charge. This may be the straw that breaks the camel's back as it is well known Kansas City is looking for another major sports franchise, be it NBA or NHL.

Only an ownership group including flamboyant Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban can save the team now.

The shoe certainly will drop soon, but in losing Jim Balsillie's bid the NHL lost what could have potentially been the best owner in the NHL, with deep pockets, a love for the game, a great business mind and an all round nice person.

Hopefully Mario Lemieux can get out soon because you can really see how emotionally drained he is.

Toronto area business man Frank D’Angelo and his billionaire partner Barry Sherman are also saying that they are interested.
