Whether Messier is successful, if hired, will be based on his supporting cast (assistant/associate coaches).
NHL Network Radio show indicated that the Rangers really need an AV-like coach, not an unknown/rookie coach like Messier.
Yup and I completely agree. If messier is coach he will basically be there to be the medias golden boy and a leader/motivator for the players. The supporting cast (that u mentioned above) will be doing the actual coaching. Big mistake imo.
