The pens are being asked to pay 120 million $ over 30 years. 2.9 million a year plus 1.1 million from naming rights and seat license (they dont have enough of a season ticket base for people to consider seat licensing) Tell me, if you owned the Pens and had cities chomping at the bit to get you to come there, where you wouldnt have to pay a cent aside from taxes and moving vans, would you do so? As a business owner? I think not.

If Eddie and Danny are desperate enough to solve this whole problem, the Pens could probably ask for some RAD money to offset that. There's no RAD money in the current offer, though it was thrown out verbally as a possibility before; that may well be the carrot that was held back to be used to finalize things. Let's hope.
