Regardless of public perception Barry will be remembered in 100yrs as the best of the last 50yrs. 1.Muhammed Ali; 2.Steve Yzerman; 3.Tim Wallach; 4.Michael Jordan; 5.Mario Lemieux; 6.Jerry Rice; 7.Bret Favre; 8.Barry Bonds; 9.Tom Brady; 10.Dominik Hasek. Sorry I'm a lover not a hater but I couldn't keep my mouth shut. I love top ten lists, and these would be my favs. Make love not war, PEACE.

I am 29 years old and haven't had the priviledge to see all the greats of hockey. I have had the good fortune to grow up with Bossy and the Islanders, Gretzky and the Oilers, Lemieux and the Penguins, Yzerman and the Redwings, etc. When I reach the age my uncle was when he and I watched Bossy/Gretzky I can recall all the greats of our time hopefully to my children, grandchildren, nephews etc, as he did with me. Like those before who were able to see the Richards, Howes, etc, we had a chance to see some great individuals play on some great teams. Here's to you Mario, and the closing of an era in hockey, and to a new era.
