They moved Messier from C to LW, and as I recall it might have been somewhere in the 83-84 season. I honestly don't remember that part of it. Here's what I recall (C-LW-RW):

Gretzky-Lindstrom-Kurri
Linseman-Messier-Anderson
McClelland-Hunter-Hughes

Then there was the mess that was Pat Conacher, Dave Lumley, Jaraslav Pouzar, Dave Semenko.

Conacher might play 3rd line center, Lumley often jumped up to Hughes spot, with Hughes sometimes joined the 99line, as did Pouzar and Semenko.

It was a dizzying combination to be honest, and I don't think they went 20 games the same way. Gretzky-Kurri and Messier-Anderson were often together, and Linesman, Hunter and Hughes all played solid minutes.

But there was alot of line juggling.
