Does disagreement automatically make a person "blatantly disrespectful"? Because I certainly do not disrespect anybody here.

When comparing Makarov to Messier we can go by several aspects. Wrt his peers, Messier did not dominate them nearly as much as Makarov (9 scoring titles is Gretzky's level domination, not Messier's). On the international level, Makarov certainly accomplished more than Messier. In the face-to-face CC87, I'd give Makarov a very slight edge. Career-wise, Messier had a longer one, but (a) he didn't have to adapt to a new league, and (b) Makarov didn't have anything resembling the Vancouver disaster. So I give Makarov a healthy advantage.
