It looks like Mario is done, played his last game of the season last night so it could be at home, pulled the old 99 stick switch trick.
If its is thanks for the memories, I still remember seeing him his rookie year from behind the penguins bench at Long Island. And having my father tell me to watch the way this guy plays hes going to be special. And while I hated the way he abused the B's I always enjoyed watching him as every time he touched the puck in his prime it seemed as if something special was about to happen. And while sickness and injury has limitted him the last few years the spark was still there a few times a game.
Good luck Mario, hope you can keep the Pens where they belong and bring them back to respectability.
