I'm gonna have to disagree with you there. Great player--yes. Great leader--yes. Great coach--I don't think so. Don't forget that he did captain this sinking ship for the last several years and often was one of the guys that repeatedly made lazy mistakes and refused to consistently backcheck. Obviously he was very different player in Edmonton and NYR circa '94, but I'm don't think he would be the one I would want behind the bench with this new group of Rangers.
