Found another comment from Messier on this:

Q:How do you feel about joining the Rangers front office? Do you think you can bring passion and a will to win back into the organization?

A: I am really excited to get back into the game. It is hard to believe it has been 5 years since I retired. Getting the opportunity to work with the Rangers means a lot to me. Hopefully I can contribute in a positive way. I believe I have a good understanding of the challenges of playing in New York, and what the players need to do to be effective, confident, contributing team players. If I can be of assistance in any way, that will be great.

And a "Will to Win"?? Wow... i didnt know an assistant GM was responsible for that...

If you read on he also thinks that Pronger was the biggest move of the offseason.

Got it from his new helmet site. Supposedly its a helmet which reduces the chance of sustaining of a concussion. Maybe we will see some Rangers donning the Mess Hat?

Doesnt look too bad actually.
