The Mc Rib

mark messier speaks

''Just like a boxer is instructed before a fight, protect yourself at all times,'' Messier said during an interview under the colourful stained glass panels high above him in the room in the hockey shrine where his plaque will be placed.

''I would never have left myself in a vulnerable position and left it to chance that someone is going to do the right thing.''

Recent rules applications to thwart obstruction have created a mentality that is inducing some players to believe they can finesse their way out of any situation ''and because of that we're seeing some injuries'' - as in guys getting creamed against the boards.
