Mario's 5-goal game at MSG in 1993

It's on NHLN right now.

1) Steigerwald, who was doing color at the time, said mario was the greatest player in NHL history. Ummmmmm, no.

2) The Garden booed Messier like heck and gave mario a standing O

3) During a 5-min power play, Cirella, Beuk and Lowe played the majority of the points. Yikes.

4) The Penguins, a 57-win team, should be ashamed losing to the isles that year

5) Ron Smith is arguably the worst man to ever coach the team. I laughed when he came back to the garden in 1994 as Quinn's assistant to Vancouver

6) Eddie O was garbage. i cant believe we traded King and Domi for that clown

7) Jagr scored on a breakaway. He actually roofed a backhander. I think that was his last breakaway goal ever haha

8) I would Trade Sam rosen for Mike Lange anyday anytime

Mario is the greatest of all time.

Jagr scored many breakaway goals during his career.....it wasn't until he lost some speed did he see a decrease......mainly b/c he started spending more time practicing his one timer than his deking moves, like he did early on in his career.

Mike Lange was a great announcer.....I will never understand why Fox Sports Pittsburgh fired him to make room for that waste, Steigerwald. However, I think Sam is one of the best in the business today. I love listening to Sam call a game....and it would be even better if Joe didn't drag him down.

Are you aware that both Leetch and Patrick missed the game?

It was a meaningless game at the end of the season. There were a ton of injuries and a lot of upheaval that year. And as bad as things were, there were plenty of pieces that gave a great deal of hope for the future, unlike the end of the season in 1998, or 1999, or 2000, or 2001, or 2002, etc.

Yes but at the time NO Rangers fan thought that way after the disappointment in 1992 and the miserable 1993.

Injuries were a small part. The rangers were a mediocre team when leetch was hurt the first time and the second and final time.

For me 1993 was the worst season to deal with. And considering two books were written about that season, it showed even more how poorly run that team was from Smith all the way down to Steven King.

That season proves how valuable it is to have a guy like Renney around to keep things from REALLY getting out of control.

I think a legit argument could be made for mario being the greatest talent of all time. Remember in '93 he went 69-91-160 +55...in only 60 games. Illness and injuries were the only things that held him back from maybe being considered better than Gretzky.

I agree with that, but I don't think any players of the old days can hold a candle to some of the new guys. Mario and Wayne played in an era where goalies could barely stand and D-men couldn't even skate backwards too well.

Ovechkin >>>>>>>>>>>>>> mario>wayne

Mario didn't play with Hall of Famers?

Could have fooled me.

Ron Francis
Jaromir Jagr
Mark Recchi
Joey Mullen
Larry Murphy
Paul Coffey


Gretzky led the NHL in assists at age 36 and 37 on very mediocre teams.

But that's not the point.


The point is that the idiot Steigerwald said mario was the greatest player in the history of the NHL during a game in 1993.

Bad timing.

mario choked away against the Isles while Gretzky led a team to the SCF playing with Hall of famers like Mike Donnelly and Corey Millen.

40 points in 24 playoff games...higher PPG than mario's 18 in 11

sorry mario
