Which Messier was offered when he was 40 at the time he should have retired. Messier has been sitting in an unofficial position within the organization for the past 4 seasons.

He wants to live in NY and coach at the same time. I get it. However he should have taken the Rangers job 11 years ago and the Oilers job last year if he was serious about coaching.

That being said I wish him nothing but the best.

Really? Because the same exact teams that won two Stanley Cups got blown out in two other Finals appearances. Your logic is flawed.

Also, to further combat what you said, those Rangers team that lost to the dominant Bruins team, each loss in the series (save game six) were one goal games. They lost in six games.

The 79 team had no business getting that far begin with. Would have been the equivalent of the Kings being and 8th seed winning the Cup.

The Rangers never built a dominant team? LOL ok, what ever you want to believe.

Question, what did you think of the 1992 team? They lost to the Penguins. Could it be possible a dominant regular season team doesn't win the Cup? The '70s Rangers consisting of Gilbert, Ratelle, Tkaczuk, Hadfield, Giacomin, Villemure, Vickers, Park...they weren't good enough for you? How many hall of fame names are in that group?

Rangers had contending rosters in the '20s, '30s, '40s, '60s, '70s, '90s. And a Cup appearance in 1950.

Either some of you have an unrealistic opinion on success or your privileged. One or the other.

you are incorrect.

but at least your post was not filled with drivel about a guy that felt he was passed over and left the team professionally. oh yea, that same guy helped deliver the only cup most of us have ever seen. horrible job by the posters in this thread. downright stupid.

If the stories are true about Keenan, then Messier pretty did coach the team to a Stanley Cup. What mad mike did during the series with the Devils nearly killed the run.

Loved him as a player of course but for anyone who follows wrestling or watched Star Trek: TNG, he became a Hulk Hogan/HHH/Patrick Stewart; he had too much of a role in personnel decisions and what happened backstage at the end of his first stint and in his second stint.

As a talent evaluator and tutor; he raved about Brendan Bell from the Spengler Cup and worked on faceoffs with the young centers and neither really went well.
Especially this!

I personally think Messier would make a better GM than coach. Either way, he moved on to do good things and as some of you have said, he'll probably be back in some form or another in the future.

I'm not sure where Messier fits, but I do think that he is doing the right thing in his own best interest by leaving.

I care about how the Rangers do. I don't see the departure of Mark Messier as anything bad.

Carry on.
