There's currently a story about Mario telling people at a golf outing that he's talking to possible buyers about them buying and reloctaing the Pens if the city doesn't give him a ton of $$$ for the new arena so with this type of stuff I think the hometown boy will have to take this into consideration.

Philly would be attractive but I think he'd get more playing time with us.

The kid is in the driver seat right now and as I said all along he will get that rookie max.I hope Slats told him he'd match any offer, that he just wanted to get the 46th pick but not to sign w/anybody until giving the NYR's a chance to match or surpass it.
