Still waiting for a legitimate argument against Messier....
So what you're telling me is the great player/coach was just taking a paycheck when he returned from Vancouver?

I have no beef against Messier the player other than the fact I think he hung around too long, but he'll go down in history for helping bring the Cup to NYC.

When he builds a coaching resume that consists of more than 6 games in a junior tournament I'll be happy to have him as a coach.
