Absolutely. Who did we have during that era that deserved more ice time then Mess. Keven Stevens?? John Tripp? Maybe we should have put the likes of Christian Dube out there and see what happens. Bottom line is that there was a plethora of horrible moves and bad players on those teams and to blame Mess for that mess is plain stupid.
