And why should he be given ANY leeway at all? Just because he's played in the NHL for a long time doesn't mean that the rules apply to Messier any different than they do an 18 year old.

TB's point was (and I hope I'm getting this right) thatif it had been a young kid that would have been in the EXACT same situation and followed through with the exact same actions the player would probably be criticized to no end and probably been a healthy scratch or see alot of bench time. It's the same old thing we've seen for too long, Messier can do NO wrong. Anything Mess does is for the good of the team. Messier would NEVER do anything selfish EVER like leaving the team for more money.... oh wait.
