Messier is a great great player no doubt about that, but he wasn't Gretzky and it's not close.


For those that want to say the Gretzky had an equal supporting cast in LA that Mess had in NY you're kidding yourself.

The Kings in 93 were a just over .500 team that got hot come playoff time and cariied by Gretzky's 40 points in 24 playoff games.

The Rangers were the dominant team in the NHL.

For a quick roster comparison:
