I'm guessing it was the "like this" in your original post that misled some.

Does Stepan have Messier's mean streak? And I don't mean a mere willingness to be physical. Messier was truly vicious when he felt occasion warranted it, and the fear he could induce definitely helped him - and others - put up numbers.

There was everything to like about Stepan's game tonight, but that facet of Messier's game, I didn't see that.
