ROLLER HOCKEY IN­TER­NA­TIONAL WAS an in­line league that ex­isted from 1992 to 1999 and had its share of fly-by-night teams. One such club was the Tampa Bay Tri­tons, who went 11-11-0 in 1994, missed the play­offs and folded soon af­ter. The team was owned by Mark Messier, who kept it all in the fam­ily and em­ployed his older brother Paul as the Tri­tons coach, and fa­ther Doug as di­rec­tor of hockey ops. The Tri­tons is­sued a set of trad­ing cards that in­cluded the team owner, hoist­ing the Stan­ley Cup he had just won ear­lier that sum­mer with the Rangers.
