Messier besides being a excellent player, maybe top 15 in terms of skill, were a tremendous winner in the sense that he lined up against the best players on the other team and just ate them alive.

Watch him completely manhandle Scott Stevens physically in the first two games in the ECF in 94. Stevens wouldn't go into the corner to fetch pucks.

There isn't anyone like him in the game right now. You see domination like that in the WJCs for example when Can play Russia
