09:11 AM ET 06.16 | The Rangers should hire Mark Messier as head coach ... of the re-christened AHL Hartford Wolf Pack. That is the place for Messier, passed over in his bid to start his career behind the bench at the top, to begin. That is the place for Messier to build a foundation that will take him on the path to the NHL. That is the place general manager Glen Sather would all but certainly be happy to place Messier in conjunction with making current head man and well respected organization soldier Ken Gernander an associate coach. That is the place for Messier to learn and to showcase himself not merely to the Rangers, but to 30 NHL teams whose coaches operate on a carousel. It's not about paying dues. It's about gaining experience independent of the experience that comes with a Hall of Fame career of 25 seasons. It's about gaining experience leading a team from behind the bench, not from within the room and on the ice.

Well it was PK or Letang, I myself didn't see much of Suter, except in the Chicago playoffs......

And this would beat... "...money for nothin', and chic(let)s fo' free". Say it ain't slow, Monsieur Dumps.

Vaigneault must be getting enough guaranteed, to retire happily ever after, on. Stay away from them Lamborghinis, Alain - and certain Olsens.

It isn't at all difficult to name at least a half dozen players that should have been considered above at least two of the finalists in dis kittygory. Purse swinging time - meow.

They always look at the puck moving, goal scoring defenseman for this award. They seldom give it to a good solid stay at home defenseman.

Its simple its a conspiracy to give the Cup to the Bruins.

No seriously, its simple the ref lost site of the puck, he thought Rask had it smothered so he blew the whistle. Its unfortunate for the Hawks, but completely understandable.
