In a letter last week to NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman that ESPN got a hold of today, Mario Lemieux called for the league to fine teams when their players misbehave. Here is the key language:
"Please note that if this proposed system were in operation today, the Pittsburgh Penguins would have been fined $600,000 this season because of recent suspensions to two players. We all have to take responsibility if we are going to improve the game.'"
What a hypocrite.
