People forget that Messier was 36 years old when he went to Vancouver.
Messier was 39 when he came back to the Rangers. Put up 67 points in his first season, then 23 in 47 games in the second, then 40 & 43. That was at the ages of 39, 40, 41, 42, & 43 on some of the worst Rangers teams franchise in history.
To compare Brendan Shanahan who is widely revered for his time here was 37 when he came and 39 when he left. He put up 62 points followed by 46 points on teams which all made the playoffs.
