If the Rangers don't buy him out and he performs like last year or even worse--the fan base is going to be all over him the entire season. It has the potential for becoming very ugly.

Golfing with Messier. WTF!--Mark very much helped bring us the cup in '94 but his return for his second go around set this team back a good 5 years. He became a perimeter player--the team bought up every has been UFA and he presided as captain over a locker room more resemblant of a country club. He lost his winner's mojo back then though every year we had the spectacle of his making absurd and absolutely unnecessary beginning of the season locker room proclamations that this year for sure we were going all the way even though year after year we weren't even make the playoffs.

Personally I'm getting sick and tired of him lurking in the shadows and angling for this and for that. He's an attention seeker. Graves is great. Leetch is fine. Richter is fine. They find their niche--they work it. Messier needs to find something to do somewhere else.
