Kansas City Penguins?
Today in Philadelphia, Penguins co-owner Mario Lemieux is set to meet with Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell in what the Pittsburgh Post Gazette is calling a "pivotal moment" in the NHL club's arena deal saga. The meeting is so important, in fact, that commissioner Gary Bettman reportedly will sit in.
If things don't go well, the Penguins could very well be headed to Kansas City or Las Vegas or Houston -- potentially after a long playoff run this spring.
I'm not sure how I feel about this. I don't want the Penguins to be stuck in a city/arena where they can't be viable financially. But I'm also not sure the NHL's rep can afford another relocation, particularly when it involves a club that features one of its marquee players and looks like it be a contender for years to come.
So my question of the day is for fans of the Caps: Considering the playoff history between Washington and Pittsburgh, and the whole Crosby vs. Ovechkin angle, what are your feelings on the Penguins' drama?
