Penguins Statement on Lockout: “We offer our apology.”

The Penguins issued a statement on the lockout today:

To our Penguins Fans and Community:

We offer our apology. There is nothing we can say to explain or excuse what has happened over the past four months.

However, now that the NHL is back, we want to assure you that the Pittsburgh Penguins will do everything we can to regain your trust and show how much we value your amazing support.

The sounds of skates churning across the ice and pucks banging against the glass are returning to CONSOL Energy Center. That means a healthy Sidney Crosby is about to rejoin NHL MVP Evgeni Malkin, first-team All-Star James Neal, Marc-Andre Fleury, Kris Letang, Brooks Orpik and others as we begin our quest to bring the Stanley Cup back to Pittsburgh.

We want to thank you for your patience and your loyalty to the Penguins. We hope to repay it many times over. Our commitment to winning the Stanley Cup and our commitment to you has not changed.

We look forward to seeing you at CONSOL Energy Center.

Well, it's a start. It's what they had to do, so at least they're following PR 101. It's not like it really matters though. They could have issued a statement that said "Come to hockey games now" and it wouldn't have changed a thing. It's nice, but it doesn't mean anything in the grand scheme of things.

We're still waiting for the day that players return to the site's background.
