Lemieux inadvertently disparaged the NHL game which we fans already know is not that enjoyable to watch.
My suggestion to the NHL to increase interest and attendance at games: repeal the mandatory helmet rule.
Hockey is better, and more fun to watch, when it's played without all of the grabbing and holding. He's always been a big advocate of the European style of hockey. Speed and skill over bump and grind.
And in many respects, the (too) rapid expansion of the NHL hurt, in that it diluted the product.
