Mario on Crosby, “This is Huge”

from the AP via MSNBC,
Mario Lemieux, leaned upon so often for so many years by the Penguins he even had to buy the team to keep it from leaving town, now has a successor in place — a star in waiting, a potential franchise-saver, just as he once seemed to have in Jagr. The player for whom future teams will be built around, just as every Penguins team that Lemieux has played for was built around him. “He’s going to have a major impact,” Lemieux said. “This is huge,” Lemieux said, relating how the momentum generated by Crosby’s presence could spur the arena effort. “We’re on Cloud 9,” team president Ken Sawyer said. “This has probably been the greatest 24-hour period of building a team here since 1984.”
