Eric was drafted in the summer 1991

The trade for Messier came late summer just before the regular season started. In fact if I'm not mistaken he missed the first 2 games due to not having a preseason under his belt. In his first game, against Boston the Rangers won in OT with Mess assisting on the game winner.
took place at the 1992 draft. AAMOF, the Ferraro brothers were interviewed that day and asked about the possiblity of playing with Lindros, after they found out about the ranger offer for him.
