There really is no argument for having Sakic or Yzerman over Messier.
Yzerman was probably the worst captain in the league before Bowman got a hold of him..and he was not liked at all at the start by Bowman.
There is a classic tale where Bowman suggested to Red Wings owner Mike Illitch that the Red Wings trade Yzerman and use the money saved to get the Detroit Tigers a good starting pitcher.
Sakic a great player of course I have him slightly ahead of Yzerman but there is no question they are both a tier below Messier.
