Geez. Everyone is really into this whole Mark Messier back to Edmonton thing.
First the New York Post was talking about it (see below). Now the Edmonton Sun has caught on.
Oilers GM Kevin Lowe and coach Craig MacTavish said they’re thinking about bringing Messier back. Assuming he doesn’t re-sign with the Rangers and assuming he’d be willing to take a pay cut. Oh. And assuming he doesn’t retire.
The Sun points out, rather astutely we might add, that Messier is old. That’s what it boils down to. Great guy. Great player. But he’s Edmonton history.
