Messier, one of the greatest all-around players ever. I cant say I will miss him though, he terrorized my Kings when he was an Oiler. But he was one of the last greats from that era.

It was just a matter of time before he made it official. His last Ranger home game made it seem pretty evident that he was gone. Can't say enough great things about him. That '94 Rangers Cup run was one of the greatest zeitgeists in sports.

He was truly one of hockey's best and even as a rival Pittsburgh Penguins fan, sometimes you have to look at individual talent and love for the sport that players hold. Messier was a great player.

Welcome to the HoF, Mark.
