I know some people in hockey think Super Mario is a god or something, but he's completely ruining this team.
Within the last few years since he took over they've given up: Jaromir Jagr, Ron Francis, Robert Lang, Darius Kasparaitis, and now Alexei Kovalev.
That's a lot of talent to be giving up for jack crap. Other than Super Mario (who is the biggest whiner in the game at the moment) what does this team have, other than a group of kids that belong in the minors or on waviers. Mr Lemieux better plan on playing another 10 year's he's all that damn organization has left. Poor Pens fans, the Super Pooper Mario has led them down the toilet. He's gotten rid of all those quality NHLers for Minor leaguers so he's the only damn superstar in the line up. Poor sad sad man, is afraid someone's going to be better than he is in a Pens jersey.
They said they expect to lose money this year, hell they better expect to be losing it for the next 10 with Mario as owner. I wonder how much his own salary is? The really sad part is, after this last trade with the NY Rag$ the Pens still expect this will help them get into the playoffs this year.
I think Straka is next to be traded, I wonder what they get for him. A bag of used practice pucks, 2 minor leaguers picked up off waviers and $4 Mill to put in Mario's pockets?
