Mess won't even score 30. We'd be lucky if he gets 25. I think he'll hover between 18-22.

Whats wrong with a third line center scoring 20-25? Most teams would kill for that ...

Yeah, and he is even a good deal at 1 mil a year. I dont believe there are any UFA free agent 20 goal centers paid less (just look at Bobby Holik)

Messier's base salary is $3.321.215.94. Don't know his performance bonuses, though I'm pretty sure he can make over $5 with them.

That being said, it ain't my money and he's played well.

I never said that there was anything wrong with a third line center scoring 20-25.

For one, if this team is firing all cylinders, Messier is our FOURTH line center. A 4th line center who scores 20+ is a godsend.

However, Messier has gotten some pretty easy goals thus far. He's certainly played well for 42, but 5 years ago, or rather, 10 years ago, he would have 15 goals by now. He misses some pretty easy chances too.

All said, I'm happy with his play thus far. I just don't think he can keep up the rest of the way.

According to several published reports, Messier agreed to defer almost all of his salary.
