I'm not knocking John Tortorella, but Mark Messier is one in a few billion that could bring it all together and would do what it takes to be the center of the legendary spotlight once again.

Is there anything that says he wouldn't make a killer coach/GM?
(Lamoriello did it)
He's 1 in a billion based on what? Him being a great ranger. He's done nothin over his career around hockey to prove he'd be a great coach/gm. I'm fine with him being a co-gm or whatever he is but as a coach I think that'd be disasterous- see Wayne Gretzky.
