Why? Because Jackass will not use Messier in a 4th line role. Lindros, Holik, Nedved will either be wasted on the 4th line of shoved out of position so that Messier does not play the 4th line.
Say what Sather wants to about Lindros or Nedved being either on the 4th line, is one thing. But Holik? What the eff' does Sather want out of him? Everyone knew that Holik's value is not as a scorer. For the last 6 weeks, Holik has been everything that we as Ranger fans expected him to be. Did Jackass just think that aby payng him $45m, Holik would suddenly become a 40 goal scorer? I really would love to know Sather's justification of playing Holik as a 4th liner.
