All-Star Game in Pittsburgh a Possibility

According to TIOPS sources, the Pittsburgh Penguins have notified the NHL that they would be interested in hosting the 2011 All-Star game if the Phoenix Coyotes relocate (and will immediately make a bid) and plan to make a bid soon for the 2013 All-Star game if that doesn't happen.

The St. Louis Blues are also interested in hosting the 2011 game if the Phoenix's relocation comes about and other organizations interested in bidding for the 2013 game are Chicago Blackhawks, Columbus Blue Jackets as well as the St. Louis Blues.

The Penguins haven't hosted an All-Star game since 1990.

Holy. Crap.
I just got REALLY excited. Hopefully the hockey gods are good to us and bring the All-Star Game here!

@Kylie -- I KNOW; wouldn't that be awesome?!!! That would be one HOT ticket though (probably as hard to get as SCF tickets!)!! ; )

@Molly - I'm really excited even with the possibility of this!!! I would think they would win any bid since they'll have the new arena by then!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!
