Ya. Stars shine brighter in New York. All the wiki stats you posted speaks to Messier's longevity. Yes he had a great career. 2nd All time in points but no scoring titles and only one runner up.
the thread says all time greatest leader, to me the only twice captain thing should get him on a list, where on that list is up to better stats guys than I want to be.
the guy is on my all time most notable list, but that list is directly related to my bitterness as a Canucks fan
