When is somebody going to challenge the leadership of Rangers GM Glen Sather? The club hasnít had a great record since he took over and things are going downhill fast this season. Hereís a rumour: Sather and coach John Tortorella out. Mark Messier and coach Wayne Gretzky in.
I wonder if this is really a rumor or just speculation...
Apply the Garrioch discount. He has no idea.
The Messier part, yes, I believe that will happen in the next 18 months. Perhaps sooner than later.
The Gretzky part, doubtful. If Messier wants to win and if he watched the Coyotes over the past few years, he would realize that Gretzky is a marginal (at best) NHL coach. It would be a disasterous first decision by a new GM. That's one reason the Rangers are building such a strong cocoon around Messier before he ascends to the throne.
