Penguins goin to kansas?!?

WTF is this? Its on espn, the pens have the oldest arena in all the NHL, and the city is giving them a hard time for a new arena. So their solution is to move em to kansas city. Thats fucked up, i mean they built heinz field for the steelers.

I promise you the Steelers bring in more money to Pittsburgh than the Penguins do. Thats why they aren't getting a new arena.

This has been talked about for a while. KC build a new arena not to long back so I can see it happening but they have also said Portland could end up with a team so who knows.

I know the steelers make a hell of a lot more $$$ than the penguins. Hell i was just up there last week, tickets to the game vs the browns were ridiculous. $170 a pop for the third deck. I dunno, it just seems stupid to move a team because of the arena they play in. Time will tell what will happen, just curious of other people opinions on here.

Winnepeg has a new arena and you know it would draw well they should move there. With the new economy of the NHL it could thrive.

Portland would love a team I am sure but I can't see one doing well there. KC meah at best you already have the Blues close by.

They would be in Misoouri then. 80% of Kansas City is on the Missouri side of the city.

One of the reasons the Penguins dont make any money is because of their retarded lease. Even selling out games they barely break even. They WANT out of that lease just as bad or worse than they want a new arena. If they get a publicly funded arena, I'm sure it will be just as shitty businesswise. Put it this way, the best "profit" the Penguins have seen in the last 10 years was the locked out year.

Pittsburgh just paid for Heinz Field and PNC Park within the past 10 years. The Penguins have been asking for a new arena for a while but the city just flat out can't pay for it and the fans don't want to.
