Trophies are trophies. But he was not as dominant as Stastny. Something could be said that Messier had more of the intangibles and his perfomance in the 94 playoffs made him a legend. Because of his leadership an argument could be made that Messier was a better hockey player than Stastny but Stastny's dominance could be brought up for the opposite argument.
