He's great for the young ones.
I really don't understand all of this "Let's have Messier on the coaching staff" talk. Messier as a coach would not be that much different than Sather as a coach. Messier disdains any type of trap or trap-hockey. He disdains playing defense. All things that are necessary in today's NHL.
The only thing that I would hope Messier would do is have accountability to someone besides rookies and other such players.
No, Messier the coach would be every bit the disastet as Messier the player (over the last 3 years or so).
