Back when Mario was at the top of his game I kind of liked the Penguins. Then he had that bout with Hodgkin's disease and retired. Then he made this marvelous comeback. But, after that it seemed that evry other week he got hurt, had all those back problems, etc. He kind of just burned out and faded away. I guess he should have just stated out after the lymphoma. He wouldn't have as many goals but he would have been far more of an icon. But, I guess if he hadn't have had all those injuries in the end he might have been percieved more like a Nolan Ryan or Roger Clemmons (before the steroid allegations). Anyway, I lost interest in following the Pens after he started to be all pathetic, kind of like real Penguins LOL!
