One reason fans admire the Penguins ownership group is because they are trustworthy and not a bunch of phonies like so many other ownership groups in the world of sports
The Penguins ownership group today released a statement and they were blunt about the lockout.
“To our Penguins Fans and Community:
“We offer our apology. There is nothing we can say to explain or excuse what has happened over the past four months.”
The statement was spot on.
Meanwhile, the NHL had been pushing hard for a January 15th start date but NHL teams have been informed that the projected start date of the season is going to be January 19th and training camps might not start until the weekend at the earliest.
