You guys seems to right off Montreal really fast. I know that if I get started I will start a fight but Montreal beat Boston twice in there last two apperences in playoff when Boston were largely favorite and got beat by Carolina(went to finals) and TB(won the cup) in those years. With Bonk coming and Theodore in nets, Montreal can beat anyone in the league just has much has they can get beat by anyone(except by Boston ). Montreal is a young up and coming team with solid veteran, and with Kovalev possibly around.......and Crosby .
boston were favorites to win what? the cup? or those series?.. because if you say cup that is far from true, boston were major pretenders each of those years, favorites in those series maybe, not for the cup

If he goes anywhere, it will be west, to a contender, with an etrenched core, and will be looking for second line minutes. He wouldn't be part of a core, as he'd be gone in a year or two. Teams that come to mind, Colorado(not possible due to salary problems there already) Vancouver (no room for 2nd line center), Dallas (too american), detroit(who knows).

Chances are he stays where he is.

You dsimply don't know what you are talking about.

Yeah, he'll do that for about 5 games in the playoffs, etc. But people like you don't see him game in and game out during the season. He's a complete floater and he never met an empty net goal he didn't like. During the season, all he casres about is his point total.

Any antipathy I have is not toward the Pens but rather toward the childish Penguins fans who pucker up to rump. Mario is a very serlfish man. In other words, he is just like everyone else. That's fine. But the silly naive Penguin fans who pucker up to his rear, well that's another story. .

Why do these naive fans do this? Which fans are you pointing to? We need some examples.

Lemieux not care about money? Boy are you naive. He'd still be out golfing if his $30 million dollars hadn't been at risk with the Pens going bankrupt. When he retired, he did not so much as show up at the arena once or make one public appearance for 3 years. That's what he cares about hockey. Then the Pens go bankrupt and his money stated swirlinmg down he toilet bowl. He then comes up with some BS excuse about wanting his son to see him play and returns. You believe that, I've got a bridge that I can sell you cheap.

If you want to learn about Mario, try reading Martin Lawrence's book about him. You'll learn what he is really about.

Why, do you have multiple personalities?

if mario ended up on the sens, i'd likely die. but i think i'll be living just fine. as fun as it is to dream, if the pens move, i also think he'll just hang him up. just cant picture him in any other nhl uniform.

More irony. You consider yourself a legion, do you?

I can sleep well at night knowing I have more people that will respect my opinion than you ever will. You're nothing but a gimmick.

montreal is a playoff contending team. with him and kovalev in the mix, i wouldnt write off the canadiens just yet, especially if theodore puts up a vezina-like performance. also add in ryder.


of course, this is all hypothetical

Naslund - Lemieux - Bertuzzi



That line would get slaughtered in their own end, if the other team can get the puck.

I disagree Mario is known to come back and play some D, I would just be more worried about Mario staying on the ice and off the injury list.

Given Mario is only good for about 5-20 games a year, he'd want to be playing on per game contract or he could cause massive damage to a teams cap.

I have to agree with this but with reserve. There are two common media reactions here; The one where someone gets blasted whatever they do, and the other one where someone is like the reincarnation of Jesus(Mike Ribeiro, Jose Theodore). Mario Lemieux would be in that group no doubt, just like Lecavalier is without even playing here. They would probably treat him like a god.
