Messier wanted to be the coach, and he saw something more interesting than being a "special assistant" , and when he didn't get the promotion, he went elsewhere.

He wasn't throwing a fit, or being a crybaby. Any and everyone here would do the exact same thing, and the wouldn't be at all wrong for it.
Not if you legitimately aspired to coach at the NHL level. People are calling him a baby because he felt entitled to the position. Pay your dues and learn the position, which is what being an assistant would accomplish. He could take over for AV down the road perhaps. A team like the Rangers on the cusp of being a perennial cup contender needs the best talent, not someone who can't take over his ego.

If Patrick Roy could handle juniors for five years. Messier could coach in the AHL or be an assistant.
