Pens have new arena - staying in Pittsburgh

I'm sure you've heard the news by now that the Penguins have a deal in place to stay in Pittsburgh. Here's a link to the Post-Gazette article.

It's essentially the same as Plan B. Given that is the case, why did it take so long? That's a question that, while no longer terribly important, will be answered once the details of the plan are laid out for the public to see. Something tells me it has to do with a certain table-thumping government official.

This is terrific news for the region. The new building will open in time for the 2009-10 season, though the city is already a few months behind schedule with building demolitions.
