Do you remember what the Edmonton Oilers got for trading Mark Messier? I don't and I remember when it happened. Think about that for a second.

Harry Frazee of the Boston Red Sox sold players to pay for his theatre and one of them was Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees. That blunder hurt the Red Sox for generations.
Messier deal wasn't bad, they got Bernie Nicholls. Rice was a big prospect back then too.

On October 4, 1991, in one of many cost-cutting moves by Edmonton management, Messier was traded to the New York Rangers for Louie DeBrusk, Bernie Nicholls, and Steven Rice
