    Which is horrible. Home prices are a friggen boat-load, renting is on the rise... especially if you want to rent in decent areas which look horrible and full of garbage.

    Staten Island is okay with home prices, but not any better.

    Oh my God Dezz!
    You can't be serious.

    Kurri was a one dimensional player. A very good player without a doubt. But to say that Messier was "overshadowed" by Jari Kurri, along with your claim that it was "Gretzky's and Kurri's team", is nonsense.
    Mark Messier was a superstar in the NHL long before he became a Ranger.

    Read Dezz's comments about Messier from yesterday. Evidently in his little world of rainbow's and unicorns, he was nothing until he came to NY.

    All i really got from it was "Nobody gave a **** about hockey in NY until the rangers won in 94, therefor, Messier's career was only important for that..."

    He isn't helping make a case for bandwagon fans. lol

    I know. That's all I'm saying because it's FACT... Messier was definitely something before coming to NY.

    Here's his quote...

    Many of those people were just as good as Mess at what they did. Messier rep blew up because he won a cup with the Rangers, something that hadnt been done since 1940.

    That wasnt the combo chief. It was Gretzky and Kurri.
