I believe that the New York Post's Brett Cyrgalis snagged this quip from a certain Mark Messier, regarding the New York Rangers' Stanley Cup chances, to get people talking, so enjoy:
“They’re definitely playing well at the right time of year,” Messier, now a paid consultant to the Oilers, told The Post over the phone, as part of a media tour for the Can-Am Spyder motorbike. “I think that after a tough start, they’ve really come together as a team. They’re an exciting team to watch right now, they’re playing a good brand of hockey. They seem to be firing on all cylinders right now, getting a lot of contributions from a lot of different players.”
When asked the obligatory question about their chances to win the Cup, Messier laughed before giving an endorsement.
“It would start in goal, and Henrik [Lundqvist] is playing great right now.,” Messier said. “They have a lot of balance in their attack right now, and their defense is as stable as there is in the league, so I give them a great chance.”
