ESPN.com news services

The NHL, the governor, players, fans & pretty much nobody wanted the Penguins to leave Pittsburgh, but economics almost made it a reality. Now it looks like the danger has passed.

Multiple media outlets reported on Monday night that the team, state and local leaders have reached an agreement on a new arena that will keep the Penguins in Pittsburgh. KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh first reported the agreement on its Web site.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, citing unidentified sources, reported that the sides have reached agreement on terms for a new arena that will be ready for operation for the 2009-10 season.

The paper reports that the agreement includes a 30-year lease.

Thank

Fucking

God!!!

You have your virginity loss penciled into a day calender?

Lucky bastard.



Oh shit, have you recently purchased a helper monkey?

Cause if so, you may be living a real life version of Y the Last Man. :scared:

Why would I be living in the past?

And leave my monkey alone! He's all excitable and throws poop at kindergardeners..... Fuck I hate kindergardeners.....

(though I wrote a Y: The Last Man parody about all this that I might put in the column one week. The parallels are too good to pass up.)

GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm glad they actually play instead of just buying their championships.

Brodeur is awesome though. I loved it when Roy was being a whiny bitch about him starting in the Olympics.

Great news, Pittsburghs a good hockey town and i hate to see a Stanley Cup winning team leave their city especially since their 3rd Cup will almpst certainly be coming within 5 years. And that's being really really really pessimistic.

What are you talking about? The Penguins will die in a horrible Plane crash and never get the cup ever again!

Buying championships? What do I look like, a Red Wings fan? ;)

Brodeur is the man though, and the only reason I don't hate that franchise with an all encompassing fury (aren't divisional rivalries great?) Both those goalies are amazing though, can't really argue Roy's talent, though I still think Ken Dryden is the best netminder of all time.

If it makes you feel better, NJ is the second most team I don't want to face in the playoffs. Sadly, the first one (Ottawa) is the one we're going to get first round. bastards...

Yeah, that WAS intended to be a much bigger slight against the Red Wings and Avalanche than Pittsburgh.

I wish it was easier to follow hockey in the midwest, but there's a big hole over us unless you're a fucking Blues fan.

I've got SRO's for the game against the Sabres tomorrow. That arena is going to fucking explode when they drop that puck. I'm so fucking amped for this. This is the greatest news I've heard in a decade. If the team left, I was going with them. I've got a team jersey that's 15 years old now that my brother gave me 12 years ago when I started watching hockey. And, appropriately, it's faded, slightly torn, still has some faint blood stains on it, and also has a slight beer smell to it from when I wore it practically every day in college. Can't wait for the fucking playoffs....

Congratulations. I'm a Leafs fan, and wouldn't have minded not having to play the Pens 4 times a year, but Pittsburgh really is a great hockey town and deserves to have a team over freakin' Kansas City.

If I were less of a gentleman, I'd want to kick you in the head for disparaging the home of my beloved Chiefs. :-x
(And the Royals... as long as they don't have another season like the last two.)

If it makes you feel better, you can have the Pirates roster. That might help you guys win, I dunno, eight more games this year.


Fuck I can't wait for this game tonight. I'm so goddamn excited I might have to go kick three of the neighborhood dogs to death in order to calm me down enough to sleep.... :cool:

My apologies. I in no way meant to disparage Kansas City as a sports town, just as a hockey town. Fond memories of the Scouts aside, it would have been a tragic shame if the Pens moved.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand we start back on the heels of the good news with a win against one of the top teams in the league. And I even got to go to the actual game. Man I hope I can get playoff tickets. This is going to be so awesome now.
