I understand what you're saying, Larry. But Messier is no where near the top of the list. See Nedved, Hlavac, and possibly the single dumbest player ever to throw on a blueshirt, Alex Kokalev. Six goals for the year? None on the PP? Oh, and pass up the clear shot at the top of the circle and try a cross ice pass through traffic.

Maybe the guy just can't play in NY.
