160+ Playoff Points, A Conn Smythe, 4 Cups, 5 finals, 4 100 point season, a 50 goal year. Top player in International Best of Tournaments. He was a top tier HHOF pick after 10 NHL seasons. And his best seasons were AFTER this amazing first 10 years.
I'm sorry, which player in the top 35 was worse from the age 20-30? In Mark Messier's first 7 seasons, he was a top 10 scorer once and a top 20 scorer once. If crosby and ovechkin produced like that, everyone would call them busts.

Stan Mikita, Bobby Hull, Jagr, Esposito at the same age were winning harts and art rosses. Bobby Clarke and Brian Trottier's first 10 years were decisevely better than Messier's. I'm comparing him to the greats pal, not the average stars.
