MM, sorry to burst your bubble, but in no way is Messier the greatest hockey player every. He IS NOT Gretzky. TGO is the greatest of all time and Messier is not even close. That does not mean that if you had to assemble a team that you might not start w/ Mess. However, Messier IS NOT Gretzky. For that matter, he is not Orr either. One may compare him to Howe, but that's as high as it will get. I'll take him over Maryo, but not ahead of Gretzky and probably not Orr. He is not better than Howe. Comprable, yes. But in no way is he any better.
