Claude Lemieux was always one of my least favorite players growing up. Don’t get me wrong, I respect him, but he was ALWAYS one of the most dominant players come play-off time, which was never good for the Flyers. It seemed like he’d have 30 points all season, then 25 in the playoffs. Lemieux joined the league in 1983. This is a video from one of the first seasons that he played consistently . Why mention all this? I just learned that Mr. Lemieux is BACK AGAIN, this time joining the dominant San Jose Sharks. At 43 years of age, Lemieux joins his sixth team in his 21st season in the league. That’s impressive.
