If you’ve got some extra time to read today, we recommend the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s interview with Penguins co-owner Ron Burkle.
Burkle, who owns the Pens with Mario Lemieux, is a billionaire who many credit for keeping the NHL in Pittsburgh.
Burkle is also a pretty private fellow who doesn’t grant many media interviews, so this was quite the get — even for a Pittsburgh newspaper.
We won’t share much of the interview, because the Post-Gazette deserves all the clicks it can get.
But on the topic of Marc-Andre Fleury, Burkle did say, “I wish we could have given the $15 million [expansion fee] back and kept him forever.”
