the Pens have been very honest about what the lost this year and the year before and both times they stated it was below or about 5 million

I'm not sure where some of you get your information but the Pens are the one team that actually runs its team like business...which is the reason we sold off players, because we could not afford to pay the 5-11 million the all wanted
Yeah, I mentioned them before, and I just saw the Forbes report today. They still have a terrible arena lease.
