He's been behind the bench during a few Worcester games as an assistant.

I also recall 210 saying that when Ricci or Marchment is behind the bench during games, players sit up a little straighter.

I don't know if it's something that he wants to start on a more regular basis, but I think he'd make a damn fine assistant. He'd bring a solid mix of hockey IQ and motivational ability. I can't see players tuning him out, especially Marleau, who played with him and has seen him bust his ass like no other.
