Gov. Ed Rendell said Tuesday that should arena negotiations with the Pittsburgh Penguins break down and the team decide to move, the state might ask the National Hockey League to intercede.
Rendell, responding to Penguins owner Mario Lemieux’s comments that last week’s arena talks had taken a step backward, said the latest proposal is so good that he can’t imagine that the NHL would allow the Penguins to leave.
“Is there a possibility that they will decide to leave? Yes, there is,” Rendell said. “But is there a possibility we would go to the NHL board of governors and say, `Hey, if you let them leave, no city is safe?’ Sure.”
