    It stands to reason that someone would happen to browse the Penguins board, see the recent speculation, and start up ANOTHER pointless topic about this in here... :shakehead

    This has been discussed and beaten to death here...and everywhere else.

    It has been known for quite a few years that the Pens will leave if they don't get a new arena. There is no NEW news in this.

    How long until a Winnepeg Penguins/Hamilton Penguins/Las Vegas Penguins/Kansas City Penguins threads apear? I'm saying pretty fast over no new info at all!!!

    We Pens fans have had to hear it for 4 years now here. It was being posted before I even registered here 3 and a half years ago. At this point, people need to let it go and see how the long awaited issue of slots plays out in a year. If they don't get the arena, people can speculate all they want. At this point, it's gone beyond annoying.
     
  7. Whats with the obsession with Portland Penguins...Portland sucks..

    Why the hell would a team keep the old name anyways?

    Did Carolina stay Whalers?
    Did Colorado stay Nordiques?
    Did Phoenix stay Jets?

    How about Portland Trash-hunters.

    Why did the Pens increase payroll if they were going to lose money if they did?

    :dunno:

    "If we have a great team and the politicians see the excitement we bring to the city, and the taxes we generate for this community, I think it's an easy sell," Lemieux said of a new arena. "But politics doesn't always work that way.

    "People are all excited, saying we're going to make money now ... but in this building, that's the best we can do," Lemieux said. "Even if we go to the finals, we're not going to make money."

    Just your typical sabre-rattling to get the arena initiative passed.

    Portland doesn't seem to even want a team, I know that Paul Allen isn't interested.

    That's annoying...

    Pens 7 mil in the hole, and still feel the need to go Free Agent crazy?

    Mario must love the organization, hate the city
