    Why are there no plans to make Sudden Death II? They could have used the Mellon Arena again, blew it up in the movie, then saved the Pens to their new home at Consol for the ending. Wow, what a movie! Hollywood would help pay for this, the city could expand as promised, and all problems solved. It’s a NO BRAINER!
