Super Mario

It's hard to really gage how Mario would have fared had he not gotten Hodgekin's and been injury riddled. The guy is still one of the best. The best? That's a debate I'm really on the fence with. It's really sad to see him go again. He saved hockey in Pittsburgh (though it may have been all for naught). We'll have to wait and see.

2 different players, Mario was never noted as a hard worker or workout type....

Matter of fact, legend is, as a rookie his Penguins teammates used to laugh at him because he couldn't bench press his weight and sat around hotels all day stuffing his face with fast food and watching soap opera's -- this poor conditioning probably led to all the back problems eventually.

Had he been a workout freak, ala Messier or Chelios, he would've been scarier than he already was and played well into his 40's at a high level....Just a great talent, who missed too much time.
