Please put anything arena related in here. I love the arena news, but we have about 5 threads saying the same thing. Let's clean it up for the people who don't want to read the same thing in five different threads.

Tulsa :lol: "mr.funk" want the pens now


As I said on the other thread, where's he gonna put 'em next season? Their new arena doesn't open until 2008. Is there another arena in Tulsa where they can play? NHL size?

I would think OK City. Then again, they're not going there so it's moot.

I just have a feeling tonight is the night. Between the first and second periods. Seems like a classic hockey "moment"...

We can only hope...

TSN sources Say

Postby Penspal on Thu Feb 01, 2007 10:39 am

TSN sources say the deal IS NOT DONE as of 8:00 pm last night. In fact, there may be a new hurdle.

That was posted last night, probably the Hill District wanting a piece of the pie.

Just like you said, that was from LASTNIGHT, and it was written because of what Madden said on his show. Nothing new

I only ever felt like this related to the Pens twice:

1) The PA Gaming license announcement

2) Watching the Crosby lottery when we got down to about 10 teams left.

One ended with good news, the other not.

Let's tip the scales to good news.

Not to mention, TSN reported on air shortly after that same website report that the team was staying in Pittsburgh but that the deal was not final yet (but nothing about any new hurdles). So TSN is not even consistent with TSN in this case (augh).

Rob Rossi on with Tim Benz right now…

- Wayne Fontana, a member of the SEA board, was adamant about the deal being close to being done. Expects it to possibly be announced today or tomorrow at the latest.

- Very little chance of the NHL allowing this team to pick up and leave.

- The only other viable option right now is KC and they are not expecting the Pens to leave.

- Gave Fontana several opportunities to back off his comments and he refused to do so.

- The $10 million payment to the Isle of Capri from the Pens may be the only real issue that is still on the table.

- From everything he’s been told, they’ve reached middle ground/compromise on the development rights of the land and the parking rights at the new building.

- The Pens may be stuck with this $10 million payment to Isle of Capri because this was a deal they cut, but they may be able to work something out with IoC to spread this payment out over a few years or something. There’s also the possibility that the state picks up the payment now and the team pays the state back over time.

- Believes this is a fair deal for the Pens, and the revenue streams will ultimately be the thing that keeps this team here.

- One other thing...Rossi did mention that both sides are being very careful about not leaking much information on this, and he said from everyone he's talked to, that speaks volumes as to the progress being made here.

Other than the stuff on alternatives to the $10 million to IoC, not much else here that we already didn’t know.

For what it's worth, Rossi has been much closer to these negotiations than anyone from TSN has. TSN is likely pulling from various reports around the Pittsburgh media (the KDKA website allowed yesterday for the possibility of this hitting another snag, but that sounded more like they were saying, "We really don't know what the hell is going on, so we're just going to make this sound good" as opposed to them actually having word of something going wrong in the negotiations).
