I firmly believe this team is now worse off with AV.
If you wanted Messier over ANY other coach that was available it's you simply thinking with your heart and not your head. Messier's biggest qualifications were what he did as a player. Tell me how it makes sense to hire someone based on that, especially when there were other infinitely more qualified candidates with actual NHL coaching experience.

I am not anti-Messier in any way. I love him as much as any Rangers fan, but we don't have time for him to learn on the job. Let him get some coaching experience under his belt, prove himself, and if he has anything even close to the most qualified candidate the next time he gets interviewed for the head coaching position when it becomes vacant I can assure you he will be hired.

"No" now does not mean "No forever".
