The first two quotes are from 92 and 93 , where it seems his ''grinding'' contribution was going unnoticed in the media but some guys like Messier took note of them.
You really want someone like Amonte shadowing someone like Bobby Hull or Ted Lindsay?

Let's be reality here. He's apparently a pretty good defensive player, but he was never a great one.
