I have hated every Penguin who ever played, so I'm being completely objective here when I tell you that's just crazy talk. I despise Lemieux, but he's the best damn player I ever saw, because I missed the first 6 years of Wayne Gretzky and I never saw Orr. Mario was ridiculously dominant with the two line pass rule, with hooking and holding completely ok, with defensemen able to lumberjack you like Paul Bunyan and not get a second look from the ref. That guy with todays rules would make a mockery of this whole league. I think a pre-cancer Mario Lemieux in 2019 could literally destroy any record on the books.
