from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
Eager to allay fears the team will leave, Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato spoke with National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman by phone yesterday. Afterward, Onorato minimized the NHL’s threats to allow the Penguins to move.
“Nothing’s really changed, other than Mario and Bettman, in their last two statements, have stressed the legal ability for them to move the team, which is not news. We all knew that,” Onorato said. “They have a legal right to shop it around.”
Ravenstahl said he was encouraged after talking to Bettman, but stressed the need to talk with Lemieux.
