Three times the savior of Pittsburgh hockey, a statue honoring Mario Lemieux was unveiled Wednesday, appropriately called “Le Magnifique.”
Anticipation has been building for weeks now, and the day Penguins’ fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. Fans began gathering outside of CONSOL Energy Center early in order to get front row seats for the big unveiling of the Mario Lemieux statue.
Jay Caufield, NHL analyst for Root Sports, joined The Fan Morning Show Wednesday to discuss Sidney Crosbyand Mario Lemieux’s statue unveiling.
A statue honoring arguably the greatest player to ever lace up a pair of skates will be unveiled Monday afternoon.
There’s a big honor in the works for Mario Lemieux. The Penguins announced today that a statue honoring the career and achievements the hockey legend and Hall-of-Famer will be unveiled on March 7.
Before he became a legend at Bishop Canevin, Randy Unger learned the game of hockey from another local legend.
To say that Pens fans were excited for the return of Sidney Crosby would be an understatement. Fans have gone 320 days – 10 and a half months – without Crosby in the lineup.
While Mario Lemieux was the captain back in ’91, today he’s the owner and has his own captain to worry about as Sidney Crosby’s concussion issues linger.
I have to admit I was shocked to hear that Jaromir Jagr turned down the Penguins’ one-year offer only to ink a deal with the hated Philadelphia Flyers. But then I thought about it, and I decided one thing: Jagr would have done what anyone else would do.
Some things never change do they? Jaromir Jagr turns down the Penguins to sign a more lucrative deal in Philadelphia, but money doesn’t matter to No. 68 does it?
Jaromir Jagr’s agent Petr Svoboda joined Seibel, Starkey, and Miller on 93.7 The FAN to talked about his client’s decision to become a Philadelphia Flyer.
Over the last three years or so, the talk of Jaromir Jagr returning to Pittsburgh has intensified. Now, with it appearing as if the Penguins are the co-frontrunners along with the Detroit Red Wings to land Jagr, I have a few reservations.
Agent to Jaromir Jagr, Petr Svoboda, joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN to talk about his client’s ideal destination and what it will take for him to sign with a team.
Former Penguin Peter Taglianetti joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN and revisited the Pens Stanley Cup victory 20 years ago.
While the Pittsburgh Penguins saw their 2011 playoff run come to an early end, today is a day to celebrate the franchise’s history.
