Messier fans, this is what you've been waiting for! Originally slated for release after the 2003-04 season, this amazing DVD was put on ice (pun intended) for a year as the NHL lockout postponed all new productions. Finally released in January 2006, Mark Messier: Leader, Champion, Legend is the ultimate review of his entire career. Featuring the original documentary released on VHS back in 1997, plus an extra segment chronicling the final segment of his career (1997-2004) and two additional special feature segments, this is a comprehensive look at the legendary leader known as Moose. With rare archival footage you'll never see anywhere else (the early-'80s Oilers footage is priceless!), this is a must for your sports DVD collection. In stock now!
"There is no athlete in professional sports who personifies leadership better than the New York Rangers' Mark Messier. This true champion has hoisted the Stanley Cup over his head six times, won the Conn Smythe Trophy for MVP of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, captured two Hart Trophies as the league's regular season MVP, and appeared in 15 NHL All-Star Games.
Now, through the digital magic of DVD, the phenomenal career of this future Hall of Famer comes to life like never before! In the main program, Mark Messier: Leader, Champion & Legend, you'll find an incredible chronicle of Messier's career from the early days in Edmonton through his rise to prominence as one of the premier captains in sports. The main program alone is packed with breathtaking footage such as the hat trick that turned around the Rangers' fortunes in the 1994 Stanley Cup playoffs and the celebration of his 500th career goal. You can relive his triumphant years with teammate and friend Wayne Gretzky as they team up to win four Stanley Cup championships with the Edmonton Oilers. But that's not all...
This DVD brings Messier's career full circle with his return to New York for the 2000-2001 season, plus additional footage and interviews exclusive to DVD, including six short stories about Messier's career from current and former teammates and career stats. Mark Messier: Leader, Champion & Legend on DVD is a prize trophy for all hockey fans!"
