In 1996 the Rangers traded Mattias Norstrom and other pieces for Jari Kurri, Marty McSorely, and Shane Churla.

In 1999 the Rangers traded Marc Savard and Oleg Saprykin to Calgary for Jan Hlavac, the chance to draft Jamie Lundmark, and a third rounder that they traded back to the Flames anyway.

Not to mention the fact that he failed to draft anyone of note post-94 aside from Savard.

Wasn't the trade in 96 for Jari Kurri and Shame Churla and Marty McSorley Messier's idea? And was that the year we ould've gotten Gretzky? Why did that fall through?
