Hmmm, don't want to piss on your "Super Mario" party, but :
The pay raise, designed to make Lemieux's salary comparable to stars such as Jagr and Peter Forsberg,
was contingent upon the Penguins reaching certain revenue levels
Rather than wait for us to bring this up
, Mario stepped up to key members of our board and said basically, `My salary is going to be rolled back to where it was last year and the year before. We need to respect the bottom line,' `` Sawyer said.
I think he wouldn't have had the raise anyway and he decided that it'd look better if he just step up and pose like
he's taking one for the team
. I, for one, wouldn't go praising him for that stunt.
