Messier didn't make the playoffs after 1997, so to make this even we'll do a comparison of Yzerman's playoff rounds from 1989 until 1997+ the number of playoff years missed (1). Which takes us to 1998. And 21 rounds played for Yzerman's teams, and two Cups as captain for each in the established period.
Hmm, so in other words, absolutely no credit for anything before that, including five finals rind and a Conn Smythe. Sounds reasonable.
