Mario Lemieux said Sunday he is considering free agency after failing to come to terms last week with the Pittsburgh Penguins on a new contract.

Lemieux, who leads the NHL with 47 points less than one quarter into the season, said Sunday he's considering his options."We're done talking," Lemieux said after recording four points in Pittsburgh's 4-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks. "We set a deadline and couldn't make a deal."
