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.
Not wanting to ask a dumb question, but we dont get a lot of Hockey here in Australia so maybe someone can answer this for me. Why did Lemieux get an assist on the first Canadian goal? He didnt appear to make contact with the puck.
