The big question in my mind is: does Messier stay or go?

Now that the Rangers have finally, for once, thrown in the towel and abandoned all phony pretenses of thinking they're still in the playoff race, does Messier still want to retire a Ranger?

You'd think the allure of getting off of this sinking ship and getting one last shot at the dance (remember he hasn't seen postseason action since the Rangers last made it) would be too much for the old man to resist. You'd think he'd want to avoid going out the exact same way Gretzky did. I have trouble seeing what the point of him being on the Rangers is at this juncture. I wouldn't even expect much from him in return, just get him off the Rangers onto a contender where he would have so much to offer in a limited role.
