Mark Howe on Mario Lemieux
"Mario Lemieux was as good as anybody I've ever seen play the game. Skill-wise, one-on-one, when Mario was on his game – even when Brad McCrimmon and I were partners – there were some shifts we came to the bench and we were just covered in snow from trying to swim and dive and just catch up with the guy. But it was great. Because it was such a terrific challenge. And you knew you were going to get embarrassed because he was such a great player. But it was worth the embarrassment."
