Hartford -- from a Pittsburgh paper

This article actually mentions KC -- as if Hartford has passed us by.

Hartford suitor ready to woo Penguins

First it was Kansas City, and now it's Hartford, Conn., that wants the team if it can't get a new arena in Pittsburgh.

Lawrence Gottesdiener, CEO of Massachusetts-based real estate developer Northland Investment Corp., said Thursday he's looking to buy the Penguins, either to keep them in Pittsburgh with a new arena -- or move them to Hartford, where he is lobbying state officials to build an arena.

"(The Penguins) are an excellent entry point to get into the NHL," Gottesdiener said. "We've said that we're in this to buy an NHL team."
