I usually appreciate Starman, who's an NY guy....but Mark messier???? I dont see it.
Messier was an outstanding playmaker with sublime on-ice vision. He had it as a winger before he was converted to center.
Why the Messier comparison??? Because of explosiveness and shooting off the rush? There's like 20 guys in the NHL who can do that every year.
Billy Guerin is the guy I think he compares to most. Nothing to do with being a Mass guy or Boston College. Big bodied, power forward with good hands and great speed. Guerin took a while to become an elite goal scorer in the NHL, but all those years on the Devils probably stifled him.
