He was just such a dominating figure a true playoff legend.
Did we ever get that from Yzerman? Yes he was a great player but just ever the feeling he could just will a team to victory?
Even in his prime he still had big struggles in the playoffs.
Yes, many fans got that feeling in '02 but maybe not as much as they did about Messier. Besides, Messiers guarantee was a gamble and he did it several times more after '94 which all failed.
I dislike that such things gets hyped up to such an extent that it propells a player above others. It's like the Legend of Bill Barilko.
