    The Pittsburgh Penguins are off the market, and owner Mario Lemieux says the team will look at relocating while it attempts to reach a deal for a new arena.

    "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.

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.

My pick: Edmonton in round in the West, and Buffalo in the East. It's interesting, because I disliked both Buffalo and Edmonton when I lived in Toronto and Calgary, respectively. It's nice to see so many small market teams go far.
