It is a damned shame when the Gov't turns down a FREE rink, close to $1 billion dollars tax free to redevelop the area that would be the Old Mellon arena. Can anyone tell me that makes sense?
Now they are going strong arm the team out of town and lose Millions of dollars in local revenue that the team brings in.
Well I guess this blog will go off the air before it really gets started.
I want to say that I don't Blame Mario Lemieux for any of this. The man has put his heart and soul into keeping Hockey in Pittsburgh, but there is only so much 1 man can do. You can't keep beating the same dead horse (Gov't) for 7+ years and only start to get a response when you are in dire straights. Thank you Mario for all you've done for the Penguins.

From what Don Meeghan said on a interview with TSN up here in Canada the talks broke down at 2:40 this afternoon . Didn't leave much time to trade him. Guess a lot of GM's were pissed that they couldn't get in on it. Wonder if Shero knew about it.
Well Thibaults days are numbered witht he pick up of Schaefer. Great pick up for a 7th round pick. Not going to contribute immeadiately but a good prospect.
Kwiatkowski is a decent D-man. Was hoping for Norstrom but Kwiatkowski will add to the defense.
Definately adds to the team. Just wanted to say congrats to Ray Shero and the Pens management for making some good deals without decimating the team.
I've heard that we might get Nortstrom from LA though Anaheim is believed to be the front Runner. I guess we'll see in a bit.

Thoughts through 2 Periods
Pittsburgh is looking like they are playing for the Playoffs. I haven't seen this team play this well since Mario's return. Crosby has to be the strongest player in the league with the puck. the stuff this kid can do amazes me every game. Praise the lord the Penguins got this kid & Malkin, Staal, Fleury.
Montreal is playing well, but they just don't seem to have the same drive the Penguins do. They are taking unnecessary penalties.
If Pittsburgh can keep it up during the third they should move up to a tie for 5th. I think it's safe to say this team has turned the corner on the last few years in the last month. The beginning of the season they still looked a bit error prone and the defense weren't the best. But now everyone has bought into Therrien's system and they are playing amazing. This should be fun to watch in the next few years.
More to Come.....

I got this idea from some commenters on the Battle Of Ontario. I live in Ottawa (Up in Canada) so I don't get to see many Pens games live, have gone down to Philly to see some battle of Pennsylvania's. Trying to head down to see the game in Pittsburgh on the 18th against the Flyers.
If you are interested in contributing to the Battle of Pennsylvania send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org I will also be scouring the web to see if I can find some guys/ladies to contribute.
