Hollywood Producer Shows Interest In Penguins

from Sports Business Journal (paid sub.),
Hollywood movie and TV producer Jerry Bruckheimer is the latest to express interest in buying the Pittsburgh Penguins, financial sources said. He has received bid information from the team’s banker, Allen & Co., though he had not submitted an offer last week. "As far as I know, they are the only NHL team free to move,” said Bob Caporale, chairman of Game Plan, which represents bidder Lawrence Gottesdiener. That may be what is attracting Bruckheimer, who, sources said, wants to move the club either to Kansas City or Las Vegas. A representative for the producer, known for hits such as TV series “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and feature film “Pirates of the Caribbean,” declined to comment specifically on the Penguins situation. “Jerry Bruckheimer loves hockey, and if the right opportunity came along he would consider it,” said Michelle Bega, vice president of the public relations firm Rogers & Cowan, which represents Bruckheimer.
