Pens Off the Market, Looking for New Home
Mario Lemieux has taken the Pittsburgh Penguins off the market. Lemieux is said to now be talking to cities looking to bring in an NHL franchise. He is leaving the door open for an arena to be built in Pittsburgh. Winnipeg is said to be very interested in an NHL franchise as well as places such as Las Vegas, Kansas City, Houston, Portland and Hamilton. We feel that Kansas City is the most likely destination, although it does not seem like the hockey hotbed that Hamilton and Winnipeg would be/have been.
