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.
What a load of absolute ********. Calling Yzerman one of the worst captsins prior tl Bowman is revisonest amd baseleds. Here let me play the game too; Sakic was a terrible captain prior to Forsberg and Roy coming along.
