Messier?

All of the best goal scorers of the 90s had equally or better talented superstars to set them up. Hull had Oates. Robitaille had Gretzky. Mogilny had LaFontaine. Lemieux had Jagr/Francis.
I don't think Bure would have benefited from a playmaker. He always wanted the puck on his stick, which most playmakers if not all, want. What Bure needed was a d man to make great passes to him.
