I'm a rangers fan who got into hockey in the time messier won the cup and was the captain in his prime. Messier is my alltime favorite player and I never saw him play in edmonton. Being such a fan of messiers and wanting to know about his career I watch the old tapes of edmonton games when they used to be played and looking at career stats and cups I now more lean to the oilers. I just can't look past what he was able to accomplish in his tenure w the oilers. It did however look weird seeing him get his number retired in edmonton.
I also can't view him as a ranger after him leaving the rangers to go to the canucks because he's a traitor
