Stevie Y aged better, was diehard to the end, whereas Mess was lion hearted early but faded away; I respect SY more but have no doubt that MM did more and had a greater impact on the game, the seasons and championships, having watched NHL hockey personally since the '70s.

The bitterness in my mouth is biased having seen Messier suckin' in my Vancouver, Yzerman against my Canucks on one bloody leg!! But my judgement remains: Messier was a greater hockey player than Yzerman. (But so bloody few have been in the last third of a century)
