I also feel that if he never went to Vancouver, this wouldn't even be a debate. He came off as a real POS during his time there and it skews a lot of opinions.

Dude is a ******, no doubt about it. One of my least favorite people to play the game. But he was a hell of a player, that's for damn sure.
oh, i agree on all fronts. I might actually being getting confused. Sakic might have been part of the poll. i'll see if i can find it...

But Messier was a great hockey player, in all facets of the game. Better than Yzerman

EDIT: My bad, it was Yzerman vs. Sakic. I knew Yzerman lost

Messier, for reasons mentioned above like physicality and nastiness and some pro-Ranger bias I have.

I voted for the more complete package which is Messier. Not taking anything away from Steve Y who was an all time great.
