Incorrect use of 10-3-39. Yzerman did not die.

Yzerman played his *entire* *career* with Detroit.  Messier sure as hell
didn't play his entire career with one team.   Part of being the "Best
Captain" would be continuity with and loyalty to a particular franchise,
not skipping to a new franchise when the money beckoned.

Yzermen doesn't have THE STARE.

I believe the subject line is "Best Captain In Professional Sports," not
"Best Stare."

HTH.

He was an excellent player, true, but what did he do that made him such a
kick-ass captain?

Okay, so you lose.

A stare that intimidates the opponents is nifty.

But unless a demonic hell-stare can rally one's own players, it's not
really a trademark of an all-time great captain.

Thanks for playing!

He was the first player to captain two seperate NHL franchises to SCs.
 He's considered one of the best two-way players of all time.   2nd
(behind TGO) in all-time points.   As far as THE STARE goes:

"Former NHL coach Jacques Demers said that once Messier got going it
was nearly impossible to stop him and the late Bob Johnson, who coached
in Calgary, likened Messier to NFL great Jim Brown. "He's a bull with
finesse," Johnson said.

His imposing visage coupled with a fearsome "look" was intimidating to
opposing players, officials and teammates.

He was known to rearrange the Rangers dressing room so that no one
could escape his menacing glare, but also knew that with captaincy came
a greater responsibility than chewing out the rookies and offering up a
few morsels for the media.

Messier was known as the ultimate leader by example."

Yzerman was captain of ONE FRANCHISE for twenty years, during which time
the Red Wings won three Stanley Cup championships.

Messier, by virtue of his franchise-hopping, can't begin to hold a candle
to that.  And for much of his career, he wasn't even remotely considered
the heart and soul of the teams he played on.  Gretzky takes that honor
for the Oilers and, to a certain extent, the Rangers.

>From everything I've read, TGO defered to Messier and let him run the

team when they were on the Oilers together.   TGO didn't come to the
Rangers until after they had won the cup in '94.

Messier was forced out (like virtually ALL of the famed
Gretzky-Messier era Oilers) by the penny-pinching Peter Pocklington.
