You're right. Simon got the punishment he deserved. Sadly, these types of hits will continue. It's just the nature of the sport. Simon shouldn't have crosschecked anyone period.

I think Simon got what he deserved. Stupid thing to do. I don't think this will hurt the Isles any either.

Yeah and to add injury to insult, Simon got a concussion from Hollweg's hit on him. Simon snapped as a result and now he's gone.

Yeah, isn't there some sweet spot in the neck/throat area where if you hit it right, the person can't breath and dies? Yes, he is getting what he deserves.

Though, this is mild compared to the Todd Bertuzzi incident. Let's look in on how Moore is doing...

Sorry to bring this up again...I'll never post here again.

The City of Pittsburgh and the Penguins have come to an agreement on a new arena for the team. The Penguins will be staying in Pittsburgh.

Governor:Penguins reach deal on arena

TSN.ca Staff with Pittsburgh Post Gazette files
3/13/2007 11:42:02 AM


In the words of the late great coach Bob Johnson, "It's a great day for hockey."

The Penguins reached a deal on financing for a new arena that will keep the NHL team in Pittsburgh.

The agreement - with city, county and state officials - was announced by Gov. Ed Rendell on Tuesday at the Pennsylvania Gaming Congress. He said money from the state's new slot machine parlors would help fund the arena.

"This afternoon I am traveling to Pittsburgh, where we will announce that all three government entities (state, county, city) have agreed to keep the Penguins in Pittsburgh for the next 30 years," Rendell said Tuesday.

"We will build a beautiful new arena."

"Make no mistake about it - without expanded gaming in Pennsylvania, the Penguins would be gone. The first puck would have been dropped next year in Kansas City."

Rendell said he would fly to Pittsburgh later Tuesday to meet with Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato, the team owners and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.

The Penguins had threatened to leave Pittsburgh if they couldn't secure a new rink. Their lease at 46-year-old Mellon Arena, the oldest facility in the league, expires June 30 and the team is free to leave after that.

Team officials visited Kansas City, Mo., and Las Vegas to discuss a possible move. The Penguins were offered free rent and half of all revenues if they agreed to play in Kansas City's soon-to-be-completed $262 million Sprint Center.

The Penguins began playing in Pittsburgh in 1967, and won Stanley Cup titles in 1991 and 1992. Their home attendance and local TV ratings are among the strongest of the NHL's 24 U.S. franchises.

According to multiple reports, the sides have reached agreement on terms for a new arena that will be ready for operation for the 2009-10 season. The Penguins would reportedly contribute $3.8 million per year toward construction of the $290 million arena and another $400,000 yearly for capital improvements.

Sources also said that the price tag for the project will exceed the $290 million originally discussed. The station reports that a meeting between all sides will be held on Wednesday to formalize the agreement.

Files from The Pittsburgh Post Gazette were used in this report.

Great news for hockey indeed!

Pittsburgh has a passionate, loud hockey audience - good for them!

Wow, the Leafs have actually won two games in a row... It's like all of a sudden they care or something.

I'm totally looking forward to the inevitable:

Total break down in the last few games and not getting into the playoffs.

OR

My personal favorite; getting eliminated in the first round.

Go Leafs Go

Unless, of course they play the Sens in the first round, then that won't be a problem!!

That is a dubious distinction

This is the stupid-observation-of-the-day, but the playoffs should be truly incredible this year. It really hit me today, after looking at the standings and the close races just to get in the playoffs.
