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:

"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."

Well, gotta admire the fight the Rangers put up, but after what happened in Game 5, they were pretty much doomed no matter what transpired. Best of all, I can finally root for my Sabres openly now that all three local teams are finished.
