Baldwin interested in buying/moving the Pens

While in the car today Mark Madden said that Howard Baldwin might be interested in buying the Pens again and this is the real kicker....moving them to Hartford

Madden said there would be more about it in tommorrows PG and that he thinks its really a longshot since Baldwin already screwed things up once

I think we should give Baldwin another chance. Third times a charm!

Why, if he's going to move the team to Hartford?

Just throwing this out there. This idea was brought up at the Pens site board by a poster and it seems like it could very well be true.

Lemieux and Baldwin are friends, and Lemieux could have asked Baldwin to just stir the pot somehow. THe Golf Tournament is coming up, and Lemieux will almost certainly make some kind of comment. The team needs some leverage and pressure on the state, and Lemieux asking Baldwin to make some kind of statement for this purpose makes a lot of sense.

After all, given what happened to Baldwin's last three teams, do you think the NHL would want him to own another one?
