Who will be to blame if they leave:

The local and state politicians.
Ed $pendell
Howard Baldwin
FC or PITG for not adding more to the pot.

Definitely Not to Blame = Mario
Mario was screwed around with for 8 years. What did you expect him to do. I'm still optimistic that Mario has this all planned out that the Pens will stay no matter what, including Balsillie's new ownership.

One major issue that should be reitterated over and over again is that a new arena will be Multi-Purpose. It's not just for the Pens. I hope Balsillie makes that clear when he speaks to the PA Board again. It doesn't just benefit the Pens and Penguin fans, it will benefit the entire city of Pittsburgh.

Harrah's for snubbing them on Plan B... Ed Rendell for taking a campaign donation from Forest City, to buy the Pittsburgh Slots Liscense... Dan Onorato, for dragging his feet and not supporting IoC... The late Bob O'Connor (see Dan Onorato)... Luke Ravenstahl for allowing Rendell/Onorato to give the liscense to Forest City even though IoC is the best plan for the city... President George Bush for the war against terror, which caused the economy to go down the toilet (its recovered now, but too late), which in turn, caused the City of Pittsburgh to go pretty much Bankrupt... ect...

Wow!!!!... we're blaming Lemieux :shock: I thought I was on the wrong message board for a second...

First I would blame Baldwin and Marino. Baldwin for putting us in bankruptcy to begin with and then them 2 for bypassing new Arena negotiations in the late 90's to throw in "revamp" Mellon Arena
