We Ranger fans are all on edge since the Tortorella dismissal. I know the Rangers were granted permission to speak with Eakins and Vigneault. As far as Mark Messier goes, as a head coach. I cannot definitively say he will be a success or failure. This team (at it's current state) is not the right for Messier right now (in my humble opinion). I respect and appreciate some of the suggestions but if Messier was named head coach, I would really hope that his assistants are former coaches with NHL experience. A Messier hire scares me to begin with. Hiring Messier and then naming (Just an example: Graves, Leetch, Beukeboom, etc) as the assistants are even more frightening.

If Tippett, Vigneault, or Eakins are the hire, I'd be excited for that. I also like the Mike Eaves idea but then I would contradict the Messier thought (Eaves doesn't have NHL experience).
