What are Messier's credentials to become a good GM ? He was a great player but that
doesn't necessarily translate as a good GM.

So, the holiday roster freeze has nothing to do with management positions, correct?

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...

Hes a brand name. And thats all it really takes in the twisted world of MSG.

James Dolan doesnt have the balls, the work ethic, and most importantly, the knowledge, to oversee a GM search with legitimate candidates.

And there are a ton out there with better credentials than Mark Messier.

Most people don't take anything Bruce Garrioch has to say seriously.

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.
