from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
The Penguins apparently have cut a deal with public officials to finance an Uptown arena that would keep the team in Pittsburgh, a state senator said Wednesday.
“I’m hearing that a deal could be made any day, which makes me suspect it’s all about crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s,” said Sen. Wayne Fontana, a Brookline Democrat who serves on the city-county Sports & Exhibition Authority, which would own the arena. “I don’t know that there are any major hurdles left. It’s all just little things.”
Fontana said he expects officials to announce a deal today or Friday.
Other reports state there may be a snag in a deal, so it is still sitting on pins and needles time for Pens fans.
