It says there that he would take Quinn's job, but it sounds like he was a numbers guy with the Penguins.

He was the Vice President of business and legal affairs for the Penguins from 1999-2000 till 2008 when he joined FSN Pittsburgh where he was the Senior VP and GM.

He can start by changing the lousy music/overall presentation at games. Lose the gray piping on the jerseys and get rid of that poo smell outside the arena..

Then worry about that Hockey business.

Seems like he's done a mixture of both what Quinn did and what DiPofi did......

Wait, is this the guy who came up with the idea to drive Mike Lange into the radio booth only and hire Stiggy on FSN Pittsburgh? If so, I strongly disapprove of this man.

Edit: Stiggy was hired in 2006. Phew. Still, why hasn't he fired Stiggy yet?

Hmmmm.... sounds like DiPofi a bit in his former role. Interesting that he's running FSN Pittsburgh.

No, that was Black's predecessor Steve Tello

I think that Pegula is hiring this guy so whenever something goes wrong he can say it's Mr. Black's fault a la that Camp Krusty episode of the Simpsons. Then Pegula can come in from Wimbeldon to save the day.

Absolutely nothing. I can honestly say I've never even heard of him.


I'd take that as a good thing long before I'd take it as a bad thing.

It shows our toughness to put up with all kinds of smells. Mainly poo smells.

I truly think a reemergence of a local TV network is a good thing. Nowadays, there are so many different things you can show besides games... I could go on forever

Plus the amount of jobs you could create in the process as well as a possible collaboration with WGR. It really would be a great thing.

Just looked and the empire website still works and is for sale actually.

Seems like just a random front office guy, not any kind of hockey personnel guy.
