Mark Messier, my favourite player of all time, is going into the Hall Of Fame this coming Monday. The Associated Press gets his thoughts, among them his memories of winning the Cup in 1990 for Edmonton without best friend Wayne Gretzky.
"I never felt vindicated that we won without Wayne," Messier said. "If anything, I felt sad he wasn't there to share it with us after what we went through winning the first four. "
Unfortunately his son Lyon Messier is having a tough go of it in the OHL.
