Besides, RangerBoy is absolutely right. Reading this article, it doesn't say anything about Messier becoming GM, it says "getting involved in management". That is to say: Messier will start off in some scouting or assistant position as he learns the ropes. He has to start somewhere, and the Rangers would be a logical place.
Steve Yzerman's title in Vice President.He is learning the ropes.Yzerman attended the WJC's in Sweden scouting the various players in that tourny.Al MacInnis is the Blues VP of Hockey Operations and he scouted the Blues prospects recently-Erik Johnson and TJ Oshie.The Red Wings have Jim Devallano,Kenny Holland,Jim Nill and Yzerman.The Rangers would have Glen Sather,Don Maloney,Messier and Tom Renney(who will be part of the Rangers even if he isn't coaching)
