Happy Birthday Mario Lemieux
Happy Birthday to Mario Lemieux today.
Mario was the complete package. He was a pure scorer and the ultimate playmaker fused into the body of giant. Often compared to Jean Beliveau, Lemieux was big and strong but rarely had to rely on brute strength to fend off defenders. Instead he left them baffled with an incredible series of fakes and dekes. With a few long strides he was seemingly untouchable in effortless end to end rushes. Rarely has a sport's dominant player made the game look so easy and natural.
Let's take a look back at Mario Lemieux's top ten goals.

Wow is all i can say. Lemieux and Gretzky in 1987 was some of the best hockey ever played.
