In an indication that Andrew Raycroft’s knee injury is worse than anyone has let on, the Bruins today picked up goalie Craig Anderson off waivers.
Penguins owner Mario Lemieux said yesterday that he and his partners have been approached by “a few groups” interested in purchasing the franchise and that he plans to begin negotiating with them.
Mario Lemieux revealed yesterday that he and his partners would be opening negotiations for sale of the Penguins franchise, although stating there is no deal on the table. “We’re just starting the process,” said Lemieux, shown here at a 2004 press conference where he raised the prospect of the team’s sale if a new arena could not be developed.
“We don’t have a deal,” he said. “We’re just starting the process.”
Even if the team is sold, Mr. Lemieux said, the new owners will be bound by agreements he and his partners have struck. That includes a promise to remain in Pittsburgh if a coalition assembled by the Penguins is awarded the license to run a slots parlor Downtown.
