[QUOTE=nyr4life5186]Theres no way Messier is signing with another team for next season. Not after what he said prior to the deadline about the trade rumors surrounding him.

As for him being a coach...a big NO! At least for now. All emotions aside, Messier is an outgrowth of Sather. He may be one of the greatest leaders in sports history, but being that he played under Sather for much of his career, I doubt he knows much about systems and coaching strategies and such. If he wants to be a head coach someday, let him do it like everyone else did it. Let him start from scratch in juniors or as a scout, gain experience and slowly work his way up.[/QUOTE
You couldnt see him and his best friend Brian Leetch playing together in Toronto next year,, Hey I hope he comes for back for 1 season,, but I think he wants no part of a team in almost a complete rebuilding mode,,
