You forgot Trottier btw.

But we'd rather this guy we currently see doing nothing positive here?

Un****ingbelieveable.
It's not that SOME great players did not work out.

It's that 99% of the great players that tried to coach fail miserably.

the reverse carries more weight.

ONLY ONE GREAT PLAYER MADE FOR A GREAT HEAD COACH - Jacques Lemaire

Think about that. There's a reason for it. You just choose to ignore it because it's Messier we are talking about.

stop ignoring FACTS.

and for the record, what we are seeing with thsi team right now is NOT systemic. Effort is not systemic and you really overrate Messier's leadership if you think that he can get these guys to do somethign on the ice by instructing them to do it.

What made Messier a great leader is that he went out there and did what he preached. coaxing someone to do something is vastly different then doing it yourself.
