It looks as if Jim Balsillie will be the next to have exclusive rights to negotiate a purchase of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Balsillie is the CEO of Research In Motion (Blackberry).
Canadian top bidder in hunt for Penguins
Now, the question for KC sports fans is, "Would Balsillie be interested in moving the team to Sprint Center?"
It would seem the answer that that question is "No".
Balsillie, who has declined comment, was the secretive Canadian bidder who nearly signed a letter of intent with the Penguins in mid-July. He backed out when he realized it wouldn't be simple to move the team. It's believed he wanted to relocate it to Hamilton, Ontario, which is near Waterloo.
The guy is a Southern Ontario native and seems to have no interest in any markets other than Pittsburgh and Hamilton, Ontario.
It seems clear that Balsillie, a native of Peterborough, is entrenched in southern Ontario.
