So, Rich Pilon, how does it feel to be immortalized in the bronze Mario Lemieux statue unveiled today in Pittsburgh, with Le Magnifique splitting the New York Islander defence pairing of Pilon and Jeff Norton for all eternity?
“To tell you the truth, it’s very cool,” Pilon told TSN, just minutes after the statue was unveiled in Pittsburgh. “I have no problem with it. If you’re going to get beat on a play and it’s there for everyone to see forever, it might as well be Mario. He did that to a lot of defencemen.”
