Do Bowman and Mario have some unsettle problems? I remember hearing from a friend that they don't get along.
They mentioned that before the ceremony started, that most of them had duties with other teams and couldn't be there, except Jagr, of course.
You're right - Bowman and Lemieux don't get along, and that goes back to when he took over as head coach after Badger Bob passed away. Lemieux hated him as coach, much like many Penguins hated Therrien, and that was the main reason why Bowman left for Detroit. As far as I know, it hasn't been resolved after nearly 17 years.
