No doubt, Messier was the proven winner, veteran, and hired gun the Rangers brought in to lead to the promised land. Just like they'll do with Richards this off season. The difference is that this year they've got a management team who is building a core to win with rather than looking to import one from Edmonton. So with that, we'll be competitive for a long time.
