No, not because I'm nostalgic, because they are freakin' HOFers and two of the best players ever at their position. I think they could bring a ton to the table. Leetch certainly knows a thing or two about the PP.

That said, re: Messier, I can't imagine AV would want to deal with that powerful of a personality/ego.
Being a good player doesn't necessarily make for a good coach. In fact, it might be a detriment. You can't teach good offensive instincts like Messier and Leetch had. A good coach comes from the player sitting on the bench while the PP is there and watching, observing his whole career seeing what works and what doesn't.
