"It is time to take control of our own destiny," Hall of Famer Lemieux said in a statement issued by his team Thursday. The Penguins are free to move when the 2006-07 season ends following a state panel's rejection Wednesday of a casino company's offer to build the team a new arena for free. Lemieux said talks will begin shortly with state and local leaders about a new arena, but added a move outside Pennsylvania is another option. Promote this thread!

Mario's threats are real but right now he's just posturing for the best deal from the city. And it seems to be working; they've already dropped their request of the Pens' contribution to the arena from $4.1 million per year for 30 years to $1.6.
