i know you must miss playing.. i do.. that you were and always will be one of the greats of our game is not at issue.. you are my hero.. my favorite player.. hands down.. of all time.. now and forever..
but as an owner - albeit an owner that saved the franchise in pittsburgh - dont you just cringe at celebrating your birthday for a 3rd time during an nhl lockout? even a little? doesnt it just kill you inside a little.. it does me..
k, this is tolly taken outta context.. but.. <--disclaimer
"once im at the arena with the guys in the dressing room, and in the bus, and on the plane, im a player.. and i sit in the back with the players and i play cards and try to take their money.."

apparently taking the players money is not a new thing for this owner.. O_o
it hurts when our heros let us down.. feet of clay indeed..
