THIS SECTION is all about the idea of Messier becoming head coach.
Messier told Pat Leonard that he spoke with Glen Sather on a few different occasions and told him of his interest and belief in his ability to coach the Rangers.
He added that Sather is interviewing many more people and going through the process, “which he should.’
Messier told Dan Rosen at NHL.com that he wanted to go through the process like any other candidate would and allow Glen Sather to make a choice that he feels will be the best for the team.
Rosen writes that Messier expressed his interest in the position to Glen Sather, they had discussions and “that’s where it stands right mow.”
Messier said that it was too premature to speculate on things and that he is just one of many candidates being interviewed.
