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

Agreed. The Cup was an entire decade ago. It was a great feeling at the time, but man, it's been 10 years. We need to let the yoots take hold of the team and create a new identity. Yes, Mess was arguably our greatest leader, but despite the lack of Cups, the team has a good list of solid captains from the past 75 years. Another guy will rise up to take the team in a new direction. Anyway, my point (before I forget) is that having Mess stay on as captain will stunt the team's growth. Some of the yoots will be in awe of him or intimidated by him and they'll be too preoccupied with him rather look to themselves and the rest of the team to make things happen. And like someone else said, if you trade Leetch, what's the point of keeping the last remaining guy from '94?
