In game 1 of the 1992 Cup finals, Mario Lemieux drew a huge penalty that Blackhawks head coach Mike Keenan thought was a dive. He told reporters that Mario was “an embarrassment to himself, to the game, and to the players he’s playing with.”
Reporters asked Mario for his response. He just laughed and said “nothing, for now.”
When the Penguins swept the Blackhawks to win their 2nd consecutive Stanley Cup, Mario told reporters, “I’m just going to go in the locker room and dive in the Cup now.”
Jagr sometimes would act as a part time receptionist in the Penguins offices during his 2nd season. He’d answer fans’ questions, stuff like that.
His English wasn’t the best though and he never learned how to transfer calls. Any time someone would ask him something he didn’t know how to answer, or there would be a situation that warranted him transferring the call, he’d just tell the caller to call back later and say “nobody here except a guy from Czecho”.
