Maybe the sabres will sign him as an assistant coach to whip the pansyness out of our forwards.

Given that he's moving back to Boston, it doesn't sound likely that he'd want a job with the Sabres. Personally, I wish the Sabres had hired him to the Player Development role instead of Numminen. The Sabres prospects (and some veterans) could use a mentor to show them what the value of a solid work ethic is more than another former defenseman to work on technics.
Congrats to Grier for an awesome career. Shame he couldn't win Big Shiny though
Although now I'm torn. Part of me would like to see him involved with the Sabres, but if he's living in Boston...would LOVE to see him return to our alma mater and get his start at BU. I'm sure Parker can find room for him on that staff somewhere...
Class act and glad he realized it was time. I'm thinking he'll enjoy retirement for a bit and probably try to get into coaching at some level next off season.
Paul Hamilton mentioned on WGR today that Regier told him he thinks retired players should take a year off to get the routine of playing out of their system and enjoy time with their families, which then allows them to approach any coaching prospects with some perspective and renewed energy. I thought it sounded like smart advice. I can see Grier potentially looking at some type of coaching role, even if it's with his alumni, Boston College.
