You can argue they have already done their part by employing many Hill District residents and I definitely think that's a great thing. The only other thing I'd like to see is that the Hill residents get a say or at least are a part of discussions on how the area is redeveloped. The Penguins, by all accounts are a classy organization that cares about their role in the city so I don't see that as a problem.
I basically agree. I don't think the Penguins should HAVE to help out, but it would sure be nice if they did
