"I thought he put everything into this," Nicholson said Saturday after a meeting with the IIHF Congress. "I certainly haven't sat down and had a debrief with Mark, it's not the time to do that (yet). I'm sure he'll be the first to say that he learned a lot. I was really happy with how engaged he was and I felt disappointment for him -- I know how emotional he was when we lost.
"That's why you like having Mark Messier."
...i obviously could care less how Canada did in the Worlds. This was a great learning experience for Messier and can only benefit him and hopefully the Rangers organization down the road.
