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.
Marchment and Ricci are the kind of guys that know what it takes to compete. The players would respond to that. I believe Ricci would make a very good coach.
