It doesn't boggle the mind. Yzerman was captain of the Wings for 20 years and won multiple cups there. He led them successfully even in the later stages of his career, whereas Mess went off to the Canucks & then returned to lead a muddling Ranger squad with no playoff appearances.

I love Mess, but it's certainly a good debate.
