He was reviled, hated by many, but me? I liked Claude Lemieux. One of the all time greatest agitators who was also a terrific hockey player. Its sad that you guys across the pond werent able to access the NHL on a regular basis, as youd have also missed out on the many wonderful exploits of everyone from North American born players to your own homegrowns like Salming & Tikkanen.[/QUOTE]
Claude as a player? Great to have. Him and Ulf would be the two 'agitators' I would pay the most to have.
This is a little funny, but my last memory of Claude is on Pros vs Joes when he highsticked a Joe in the face, when he could just have easily stick or bodychecked him. Worse, he went back to the Pros bragging about it. THAT is low-character in its most naked light... you can't take the dirt out of a guy like that! Like boxing Lennox Lewis, and he punches you in the nuts, then talks big about it.
