Messier is a great player but I think his contribution to the NY Rangers cup is vastly over rated.
What is always glossed over is Sergei Zubov's contribution to the team. As a Defensemen, in his first full season, he led the team in points and had some huge moments for the team. Nemchinov's leadearship with the young Zubov(23 y/o), Kovalev(20y/o), and Karpotsev(23y/o) is never talked about either.
Then there is Brian Leetch's amazing play. I think Messier just gets the credit because of his status as a star coming in and the guarantee.
