I hoped, strongly hoped, but deep down I was always a bit worried until he finally signed that long term contract. The main board certainly was convinced for the longest time that he would be elsewhere eventually and made no bones about sharing that opinion with us.

We sometimes take for granted how lucky we were in getting this guy, and I am talking far more than just his on the ice skills.
I think actually playing with Mario and not just working for him helped tremendously. He got to see first hand what it meant to be a sports legend in a city like this. The fact that we've had both (and Geno) really just isn't fair to most other teams. We are beyond spoiled.
