If people thought Lemieux was great when he came out of retirement, imagine how much better he was before his 1st retirement. It's a shame there are people that are too young to see him play when he was at his best.

Lemieux is about the only person I consider god-like, lol I know...sounds weird but when you are a diehard Pens fan, ML66 is the man. I have beaten up my brother for dissing Lemieux when we were younger.

The weird thing is that Lemieux did some crazy ***** when he wasn't really in great shape, he took conditioning really serious his 2nd time around. If he did that early on in his career, just imagine how much of a beast he would have been. I think he would have been a little more physical (something people forget about him, when push came to shove, Mario shoved back).

Greatest owner ever.

Wayne Gretzky, go take some notes you whiny deserter.
