Default Lemieux out for season

PITTSBURGH -- Mario Lemieux will miss the rest of the season after hip surgery next week, but he doesn't plan to retire.


Lemieux, a six-time NHL scoring leader and two-time Stanley Cup champion, hasn't played for the Pittsburgh Penguins since injuring his left hip Nov. 1 against Boston.


He has since undergone therapy and rehabilitation, but an MRI test performed Tuesday showed no improvement. Doctors recommended surgery.


"I was optimistic that the injury would heal, and I was hoping to get back in the lineup and play with some of our very promising young players," Lemieux said in a statement. "It is disappointing that I won't have a chance to return to the ice this season, but I look forward to coming back next year."


Lemieux, who also owns the last-place Penguins, will have arthroscopic surgery Jan. 13 to remove a degenerative labrum and repair a tendon.


Lemieux, 38, also missed three-quarters of the 2001-02 season with a right hip injury that also required surgery. Lemieux had that operation shortly before helping to lead Canada to its first Olympic hockey gold medal in 50 years.


He rebounded to lead the NHL in scoring for much of the 2002-03 season, finishing with 28 goals and 63 assists for 91 points in 67 games.


"The encouraging thing for me is that the surgery in 2001 was successful, and I have had no problems since then with my right hip," Lemieux said in the statement.


A six-time NHL scoring champion and three-time MVP who battled back from a bout with cancer and two back operations, Lemieux's career totals are 683 goals and 1,018 assists for 1,701 points in 889 games.


"We'd been hoping to get him back in the lineup, but I know he's been frustrated by the lack of improvement," coach Eddie Olczyk said. "It's very unfortunate, because he worked so hard over the summer and was in such tremendous shape to start the year. He was looking forward to having a great season."

====================

I don't know why this guy just won't retire. Every year he misses so much time because of injuries. He just has to face the fact the his body can't handle playing anymore. But its not like he could do much for his team anyways. At this point, no one can do anything for them. I bet the best AHL team could beat them lol. But at least I don't have to put up with hs bitching thoughout the season. He always seems to cry over everything.

Well he's saying he wants to play one more year. But who knows what will happen. He's better off not comming back though.

Man it's going to be sad if he comes back again next year. One thing I hate watching is good athletes who just don't know when to give up.

I don't blame them for wanting to play the game they love but you got to know when enough is enough.

Mario, sorry but it's over.
