I'm with Loser. I'd rather, if the Pens leave Pittsburgh, see the team, with others in dire fiscal trouble, fold, than move. The NHL is in desperate need for reorganization, to the point that if a year were required to shut it all down and start from near-scratch, make it so.

Expansion and thinning of talent (and the neutral zone trap) have really made a sport that could be #2 in the US, imo, a distant, distant fourth with Freddy Adu and MLS threatening to push it further down the totem pole over the next few years.

I want the Pens to survive, but if they don't, they should take a number of teams with them for the good of the sport as a whole.
