IMO, that's why he is not on another playoff team right now. Nothing to do w/ wantig to finish out in NY. Mess knew fully well that a trade to a team like Detroit or Colarado would result in no letters on his jersey, 10 minutes a night skating on the 4th line w/ no special teams time. While Jackass runs the Rangers Messier will NEVER be a 4th liner.
