I'd like to say I was happy that it was the other PA team that ended the streak but that would be a lie, I'm just NOT happy. Oh well, HUGE kudos to Super Mario!!! If it we were gonna get beat by anybody at least we got beat by one of the best ever.
Gretzky is the "great one" not doubt. if you watch lemieux play he looks effortless. when he returned from his 3 year absence somebody said to Jagr that Lemieux looked pretty good out there and didn't seem too tired. Jagr replied " thats because he doesn't have to skate" (maybe that shouldn't be in quotes because i'm not sure if those are his exact words)
the truth is that Mario doesn't have skate a whole lot. he knows the ice, he beats players without looking pretty and doesn't get hit. all this because he in my belief is the best player when it comes to vision.
