You know lost in all the Mess hate is that our illustrious GM went to HIM to offer him the job
So think on that for a moment. Our GM approached a guy with NO coaching experience and asked him to take the job. If we believe this interview Mess told Slats to do his due diligence and look at everyone
So it is just another instance where Slats makes knee jerk decisions and moves. And Mark Messier told him to take a step back and do his job.
