PITTSBURGH (AP) -The Pittsburgh Penguins will wait until the 2010-11 season to open their new arena, rather than open it during the 2009-10 campaign as initially planned.
Waiting until the 2010-11 season will give the team time to do the building right, both for the team and city, team spokesman Tom McMillan said Thursday.
``The right thing to do is to do it the right way. The matter of a few more months will enable us to do that,'' he said.
The wait is not expected to increase the arena's $290 million cost.
