Mario's mansion

The Journal de Montreal today has a story and photos of a magnificent $20 million mansion -- or Swiss castle -- just completed in the Laurentiens north of Montreal in the Quebec province, and now owned by Penguins Hall of Famer and co-owner Mario Lemieux. It's in French, but we offer the Google translated version below, and you can look at the photos here.

Apparently Lemieux calls the home "Magnificent," and according to the newspaper, Lemieux declined to comment on it through a team spokesman.

It's built on a ridge near a golf course and ski slopes, complete with a pool and tennis courts. There's what looks to be a huge guest quarters over the garage. Gotta be for Sidney Crosby, eh?

The gist of the story is that here's an NHL owner completing such an extravagant home while the owners collectively have locked out the players. Lemieux's local long-time residence is a large home in Sewickley.

Here's the translation of the story, unedited:

Is a story that may be wince players in the NHL lockout.

While the labor dispute between them continues to team owners Mario Lemieux has just taken possession of his "pied-à-terre" in Tremblant.

A sumptuous whose construction began in September 2009 and for which he would have paid more than $ 20 million.

The former star of the Penguins, which became majority owner of the team in 1999, already has a lavish mansion in the Pittsburgh area.

15,000 square feet

Lemieux would be delighted by the attributes of the new property in the Laurentians, which is located near a golf course and ski slopes.

This is a home worthy of the rich and famous including Lemieux took possession.

Style "Swiss castle" stone and solid wood, it is almost as big as a NHL rink with its 15,000 square feet.

There are no less than 23 rooms, with 23 homes and 10 bathrooms.

It seems that the biggest challenge is the manufacturer just been an engineering related to the number of households, while it took adjust air intakes due to their very high number.

No problem for either indoor parking with a triple garage and a double garage.

For leisure, there is a large inground pool and a tennis court with heated floor on stilts.

The curious

According to our information, Lemieux would often pointed at Tremblant throughout the building, accompanied by his wife Nathalie and their four children.

The former number 66 would now come for a ride more often in Quebec, and maybe even move there one day to be closer to other family members.

It was, however, impossible to talk about his future plans in Quebec.

"This is not the time to discuss my personal affairs", we just let it know through the vice-president of communications for the Penguins, Tom McMillan.

Meanwhile, the "second home" the Magnificent aptly nicknamed its owner, and continues to be the center of attraction of the Way of skiers.

Some onlookers have also regularly at the gate in the hope of seeing one of the greatest players in the history of the National League.

Apparently he's doing all right during the lockout. Must be all that TV revenue money. I couldn't afford that if I won tonight's Powerball.

Meanwhile, businesses continue to lose money because of the lock out.

Yea, way to rub our noses in it.

I don't care what Mario does with his money, he earned it, he should spend it however he sees fit. That includes heavy la_guin security.

My gripe is moar with the media decided to make it a story.

It's how class warfare grows.

Good for Mr. Lemieux. He earned his money and can do as he pleases. Pretty sure he's not one of the owners that's on the "Lock them out" side of things. He's been on both sides and likely would rather see his team playing, selling merch, being a part of the community, and WINNING, rather than languishing. Burkle as well.
