Coach Messier would have had Haley on fourth line.

Respect and misguided loyalty are two entirely different things.

Just because someone is a long-term fan doesn't mean they automatically want Messier anywhere near the team.

It's attitudes like that which led to Messier playing far past when he should have retired for the Rangers.

No but saying Messier and Haley would make the team better is.

Messier understands the business of hockey and always has. He's headed for Edmonton like he headed to Vancouver, NBD.

How do you know? Sather didn't sign all these UFA's to send them to Hartford.

Really like Haley but he was always a bit of a long shot to make the team. San Jose is not really a tough team but neither are the Rangers. Haley is a middleweight. A bit like Prust--not as good a player. He fought Stortini--a much bigger player and a legit goon in Hartford's first game and didn't do all that great. Haley would make the team tougher--but not necessarily better and there are limitations to just how much Haley can do as far as fighting the really big and tough guys.

They have a rookie coach behind the bench, and a team thats still extremely green. What better scenario for Messier than to step in as head coach when that franchise is ready to take off?

Eakins must already hear the footsteps of the good ol' boys network ready to trample him.
Yup, this is how I see it too. It is apparent that Messier has HC aspirations in the foreseeable future (without prerequisite of paying dues to get the experience). And Edmonton is the best place in this regard (young talent & rookie coach) especially given his connections within the Oilers organization.

Did Messier had any notable hockey accomplishments (not just reaching whole career milestones) since he first left the Rangers for Vancouver? BTW that separation was also due to what he perceived was personal disrespect by the Rangers organization - Smith was not willing to increase his salary above what #99 was making.

Player Messier would have, no doubt. Coach Messier? Do you have any proof?

Nash having a concussion is SO FUNNY

LOL remember last year when no one knew if he had a groin injury or concussion but most of us were easily able to surmise that he likely had a concussion.

We were all mocked. LOL GROIN INJURY OR CONCUSSION PANIC

LETS CALL IT A GROIN CONCUSSION! ITS SO FUNNY THAT OUR BEST PLAYER MIGHT BE OUT FOR THE SEASON CAUSE WE NEVER KNOW WHAT WILL COME OF A CONCUSSION.

Turns out he only missed 4 games. Alright, good.

Now he has another concussion. Its so funny. Lets make jokes. LETS MAKE JOKES

Have you ever perhaps heard the phrase, "so bad you have to laugh?"

I guess instead of laughing off the horrible luck and abysmal showing last night we should all take your approach and go in to serious mode. Grr grrr I'm so mad and serious and upset, omg omg, grrr, stop joking guys!

I think everyone has said their piece here. We're not bumping this after every loss. Closed.
