It's been a while since we checked in with our old buddy Mark Messier. Too long, actually. I guess that's what happens when our biggest source of entertainment is retired -- there's just not too much we can do (If only this blog existed during the 90s, we'd never run out of things to write about Mess).
So, Messier recently did an interview with John McGourty of NHL.com. It's nothing earth shattering, praising Messier for just about everything under the sun. But we're not here to roast McGourty for quotes that give Mess a literary BJ -- take, for example: "it's not entirely clear if [Messier] put more into Game 7s of the Stanley Cup Final than he did on a frosty February Tuesday night game in Winnipeg against the Jets." ed. note: writer's head nearly exploded after reading that quote -- it's more about what Mess said in the interview.
McGourty's line of question was, well, repetitive to say the least. But thanks to his investigative reporting, we've learned more about Mess in this one interview than we ever knew before.
