So considering Marks ridiculous competitiveness, complete awareness of the pitfalls of great players becoming GM/Coach etc.
What would a Messier team look like? Would he clean house? Start from the ground up? Go Bigger? Faster?
This, so far, is looking like an almost identical re-hash of the "Messier as Coach/GM" thread from about a month ago. Everyone interested should read the comments posted in that one, because it covers the subject thoroughly.
In short, there's virtually no evidence at this time to suggest that Messier would be a effective GM. There's not a lot disproving the idea either (although being Sather's understudy seems dubious), but at this point he would be a complete unknown. Most of the time, the people supporting the idea of Messier as GM cite elements/attributes from his playing career as reasons why he'd be an effective GM -- even though there's really no direct correlation between being a successful player & successful executive.
