Messier Vs Yzerman

Better Career

In a debate that began in in a Jaromir Jagr thread of all places it turned into Messier Vs Yzerman.

To me it isn't close.. Messier without much of a thought.. I've often thought Messier overtime has really become well overrated on this board (On the general anyway.. don't spend as much time on history but can't imagine it being much different.)

I could only see Yzerman winning this due to it becoming a popularity thing and people seeing Yzerman as more of a "nice guy"..hope it doesn't but whatever.

Top 70 of all time of all time as of 2009.

Messier was voted 22nd.
Yzerman 36th.
