Lemieux gives his raise back

There was a slight uproar in many circles when Mario Lemieux was awarded a raise by the Penguins' management group this summer, a raise that upped his 2002-03 salary to more than $10 million - nearly double his previous year's salary - for his combined playing and front office roles.

Well, Lemieux quieted those critics today by rolling back his salary to pre-2003 levels, meaning he will make only half of what he was due to take home this year. The announcement came during an afternoon press briefing conducted by team President and Governor, Ken Sawyer.
