It's not as special as the Islanders news but it's pretty awesome for me and a major relief after somewhere between one and seven years of uncertainty and tumult.

The Pgh Post-Gazette says the NHL will likely block a move of the Penguins since there is an arena plan in place:

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/06200/706788-61.stm

"NHL bylaws, funding plans should keep Penguins here

The state and local government's proposed plan for alternative arena funding and the NHL bylaws have dovetailed nicely to make it difficult for a new owner to move the Penguins to another city."

"The NHL's bylaws are not public documents, but they contain a passage that defines many conditions that need to be exhausted before a team would be allowed to move, NHL spokesman Frank Brown said yesterday.

Since the Penguins' major problem is its facility, the NHL probably would not approve relocation as long as there is an active plan for a new arena."

CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES COME ON.

Funny you should mention the Pens and Caps Justin, as those are the only teams it seems who aren't fighting witht he Habs for the final playoff spot. In theory (and it's a longshot), we could catch up with the Flyers (two games in hand, 15 points back)....
