Andrew Murstein is the third-generation owner of a business that's made a fortune putting taxi cabs on the streets of New York City. Now Murstein, president of Medallion Financial Corporation, is heading an investment group including homegrown celebrities Mark Cuban, owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks, and Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino, hoping to buy the Penguins. "The only other team I seriously looked at was the St. Louis Blues, and in the last five years I've only looked at two teams seriously -- the Blues and the Penguins," Murstein said. His group is one of five serious bidders looking to buy the team from the group led by Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux. "The next step is to wait to hear the groups that they are going to be working with," Murstein said. "They're going to limit the field to a couple of potential buyers sometime in the next two weeks."read on
