"Anyone notice how bad his teams got whenever Wayne Gretzky wasn't his teammate any longer? like me recognized how overrated he was even when he was with the Oilers. He thought he was old school, when he was just old."
1. He led the Oilers to a Cup, OVER Gretzky's Kings in the playoffs, and WITHOUT Gretzky in the Finals.
2. He led the Rangers to a Cup in 1994, WITHOUT Gretzky.
3. The guy scored nearly 20 goals and 50-60 points a season PAST the age of 40. You have to be a complete imbecile or complete hockey novice not to recognize how great that is.
Enough said. Must be another disgruntled Flyers fan. Time to go watch my Lightning Cup DVD while I anxiously await this release.
This collection will be a great addition to my DVD library.
Then Messier and Rangers came to US. Whatever you say, hockey is minor pro sports comparing NFL or NBA or MLB in the States.
But when I watched this Messier Video/dvds, I just realized how much I was missing not following NHL.
I knew there was Gretz, Mario, etc... But none of them were like Mess. After Jordans' 1st retirement, this was the only sport personality video/dvds I could enjoy watching. And I still watch.
The reason is this is not a just hockey player video/dvds, but just like Jordan' parsonality video/dvds, it's about life. It contains biographical elements.
All the sports fans can enjoy this if you see that way.
I was hoping for more, better video of Mark's style and skills. I would really like to see what he does that makes him so good; and the DVD format seems to offer so much potential for that sort of demonstration. There is a fair amount of video of Mark, but not as much and not as good as I would have liked.
Still, it's one of the few ice hockey DVD's out there; certainly more ice hockey content than "Mystery Alaska", and I'm glad to have it.
I became a hockey fan as a kid when the Oilers put an end to the Islanders' dynasty in 1984 (the Islanders had won the previous 4 Cups and Edmonton went on to win 4 of the next 5, and 5 of the next 7 Cups). After Wayne Gretzky was surprisingly and dramatically traded to the L.A. Kings in 1988, Messier led the Oilers to yet another cup in 1990. Then, when Messier came to New York, he already had more championships than the Rangers had in their long history. He ended 54 years of suffering for so many die-hard Rangers fans by leading them to the Stanley Cup in 1994.
Mark Messier is one of the best that ever played the game. Period. It's a lot of fun to re-live some of the great moments of his career with this disc. However, while Mess' gets 5 stars, this disc only gets 3, because so much of the voice-over script is so incredibly lame. It's fine when they're simply re-counting facts and so forth, but the "colorful" language is embarrassingly bad at times.
All things considered, this is still a worthwhile disc and a lot of fun, especially at this affordable price (I got mine in the marketplace and paid just a couple bucks!) it is well worth it (especially in the off-season, or any time Bettman is the league commissioner -- another lockout this year ... Bettman's gotta go).
