      And if the oilers take sequin then the leafs get hall and probably never trade for JVR, because we already have hall and lupus, and maybe we never draft Reilly, because we still have Luke Schenn.

    I was going to sum up the issues with Messier among Canucks fans, but this post on HF pretty much sums it up: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/showthread.php?t=1385597

    The reality is a bit different if you look closely, but basically Messier is tainted with his connections to McCaw and Keenan blowing up the core of the beloved 1994 team and the ensuing clusterf**k that Messier’s time with the Canucks became. But what probably stings most is 1. the Linden trade, and 2. Wayne Maki’s (unofficially retired) number is given to Messier. (If he hadn’t taken the jersey from the Canuck that died of a brain tumour & then chased The Beloved Trevor out of town, then things might have turned out differently.)
