    Anybody know what the latest news on the possible Pens' relocation is?

    An old folks community in the sunbelt, think Florida, is ponying up a lot of money to build a new rink. They all moved from the north when they got old, and the one thing they miss on the weekends is hockey.

    Maybe Salt Lake and Pittsburgh can make a trade. Pitt gets Real Salt Lake, Utah gets Sid Crosby

    I don't like that trade. I would much rather someone step forward and help finance a new area for the Penguins so that they stay in town.

    Bad trade for Pittsburgh, which would you rather have, Crosby or Adu?
    No contest its Crosby

    Check out the demographics in Pittsburgh. It pretty much is an old folks community without the sunshine.

    I'm working on a story about this right now.

    I'm trying to capture the spirit of the thing.

    I think there are a lot of shysters in Florida.

    Hmmm...retirees from Florida....any of the Pittsburgh SportsJournalists.com types remember the would-be ABA Pittsburgh Hardhats from two or three years ago?

    Who in their right mind would buy a last-place team?
