Arena News

Hey pens fans,
The only thing that I have heard is that Harrrah's is possibly saying that they will back Governor Rendell's Plan B, to keep the Pens in town. Personally, I think Isle of Capri has a much better plan, but they are not in the front running from what I am hearing. More people need to speak out if we want this done for our Penguins. Go to my links and click on Pittsburgh First for info and how to contact the governor. The fans need to speak speak out. It is really now or never guys.

GM Hunt/Malkin

Hey pens fans,
Three names have surfaced as possible candidates to replace Craig Patrick as GM. They are John Weisbrod, worked in the IHL and then became a GM in the NBA, Neil smith, who was the GM of the Rangers for eleven years, and Brent Sutter, who is one of the sutter borhters who played in the NHL. He also is the owner/coach of the Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League. Now relating to Malkin. Famed goalie Vladislav Tretiak has recently been elected head of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation. This makes the possiblility of Malkin being her even better. His is more for the transfer agreement between the NHL and theInternational Ice Hockey Federation than his predecessor, Alexander Steblin was. this is good news for Malkin. Russia is currently the only European hockey-playing nation who has not signed this agreement.
