Lemieux Meeting Kansas City Officials Today

From Dave Molinari at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

Kansas City officials, eager to find an anchor tenant for a new arena, will get their first opportunity to lure the Penguins there today.
Council wants details of proposed arena financing
Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle, who lead the franchise’s ownership group, and other members of the team’s front office accepted an invitation to travel to Kansas City and meet with representatives of the city and the Sprint Center, a $276 million multipurpose venue scheduled to open this fall.
The Penguins’ lease at Mellon Arena expires in June, and they have attracted expressions of interest from cities across North America that are in the market for a National Hockey League franchise. This will be the first meeting between Penguins executives and people from one of those cities.
