Mario Lemieux sits upon his mountain of cash and cast down the unholy Islanders who thrashed his beloved Penguins in more ways than one Friday past. As he did so, he did not speak of the filthy Matt Cooke, the dirtiest player in the league, as he sits out his current suspension for his latest evil deed.

Oh Mario, you will save us! The virgins (non NHL fans) cry.

As ridiculous as it is.

Zenon Konopka of the Islanders responds, speaking what most non- Penguins fans feel:

Link care of

One day after Mario Lemieux leveled criticism at the National Hockey League for the way they handled the brawl between the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Islanders, tough guy Zenon Konopka offered his own response after practice on Monday in Ottawa.

Konopka, who has 193 penalty minutes in 56 games, said he can't believe how far removed Lemieux is from the game of hockey.

On Sunday, the Penguins owner said what happened between his team and the Islanders was a "travesty" and "painful to watch".

Trevor Gillies and Matt Martin of the Islanders were suspended nine games and four games, respectively, a sentence too light for Lemieux.

"The NHL had a chance to send a clear and strong message that those kinds of actions are unacceptable and embarrassing to the sport," Lemieux said. "It failed."

Konopka jokingly added that when he gets home, he was going to take down the Lemieux poster from his bedroom wall.

The Islanders face the Senators at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa on Tuesday.
