oh you mean like kovalev's turn overs?
Or lindros losing his man in the zone?
or poti losing someone in front of the net?
or lundmark taking a bad penalty and getting thrown right back out there the next night?
or maybe you were referring to Petr Nedved's offensive wizardy?
Messier aint perfect and he isn't the player he was, but the fact that at 43 he's put 20 goals and 40 points and has managed to be a plus player says that he can still play.
He's been used in the right situations this year and he's done just fine.
On a better team his numbers are proably even better, but what does it say when more than few times Messier was the only dang center on this team who could generate anything and still remain healthy.
this team has a lot of problems, but Messier's performance has not been the biggest.
if those younger players like lundmark actually showed a pulse out there we could argue that point.
if lindros, nedved and company actually put up even half of what they could then we arent even talking about messier.
