Shock and awe.


...Oh, and even more canonization of Messier than already exists.

I would say good job. I'd rather the Rangers win than be right.

I'm assuming you made an avy bet with a Bruins fan. Pathetic that he couldn't use proper grammar in your avatar.

If I were you I'd be basking in the glory that the avatar technically doesn't mean what he wants it to mean.

Ryan Callahan with a full support staff of secondary coaches for the x's + o's, running practice, etc.

Provides same glue as in locker room w/spiritual leadership, but now no longer without any authority to resolve any bs.

Glen Sather is at his home Palm Springs,California home(Bob McKenzie reported this on NHL Live/NHL Network). So any interviews with take place there. The Rangers are having their team meetings next week and those are usually held at Sather's home. Slats is in California for at least the next 2 weeks.

It is not going to happen. Just, please, drop it. What if he gets injured? How will he go to the media? How can you respect someone as a coach when they are your peer? It's just not a good idea for a multitude of reasons.

Exactly. Why the hell are some people so ****ing hell bent on being right? I love eating crow when it is good for the Rangers.

I think deep down every Rangers fan would hope and pray Messier does a great job. Giving the 1001 reason why it probably won't work or why he isn't the best guy for the job doesn't mean you are rooting for Messier to fail.

Although if it's between Messier and Callahan as Player-Coach I'll take Messier...

Seriously. Either job should require 100% of anyone to be done right.

I'd be ecstatic, but I wouldn't apologize for thinking that someone with 0 experience was a bad idea at the time.

The Marlies probably get as much media attention if not more than the Rangers...

Nope not true. The Marlies get less attention than most OHL teams here.

AV or any coach would not take the job if Messier is forced on them as an Asst Coach...why would anyone put themselves in that position?

I see the masses on the Rangers Facebook page are obdurate on Messier as HC, Graves as Alternate.

Why do people want Messier as assistant coach?

I'd rather the head coach Sather decides on to bring in his own people. Someone that knows their system and are already on the same page. Nothing worse than hiring a new coach and saddling them with someone they might not mesh with.

But give me Boucher or Tippett.
Of all the stupid decisions Sather has made, it'd be the biggest. At least Lowe and Trottier had previous coaching experience in some capacity.

They are even less bearable than HF.

More than likely, the head coach will pick his staff.

But... you never know.

I say that because I would hope that a stipulation of hiring an inexperienced coach, I dunno... someone really inexperienced... would be that the assistant coach(es) would have some exeperince that could help said, new coach along the way.
