Is that a bad thing?

ruthless is not the same as reckless.

As far as post Cup, moves were made and everyone involved needs to be accountable to that, but mostly Neil Smith and the volitility of the Keenan effected that.

I also don't buy this assumption that Mess is being schooled by Sather. Messier is his own man and would bring his own style to the table.
Y'know, I'd say you were wrong if a) we weren't talking about MARK MESSIER, and b)if I was a poster who did not remember or know about Mark Messier.

These people talk of him like he was just some glorified old bag of tears lucky to be with a bunch of awesome guys....and some of us are thinking why him being an old bag of tears is 150% acceptable because those awesome guys wouldn't have won any of it if not for him and his mind.
