The Captain disputes the part of the New York Post report that said he interviewed for the Edmonton Oilers’ coaching position with his good buddy and Oilers boss Kevin Lowe.
Meanwhile, do you guys think, like me, that Jim Schoenfeld ought to start looking for a new career path? I think Schoenfeld has done a good job, and probably deserves to be the next Rangers GM at some point. But I also don’t think Messier came back to be a scout, or to get Glen Sather’s donuts.
And I know that Jim Dolan thinks extremely highly of Messier (it was under Dolan that Sather was, reportedly, ordered to re-sign Messier from Vancouver in 2000).
So do you think Messier will eventually sit in Sather’s chair? Or do you think he’s more likely to be John Tortorella’s eventual replacement behind the bench? Or what?

I’m going to cover the hockey portion of the Maccabi games today. The Westchester hockey team is playing twice, against teams from Montreal and Philadelphia. I was pretty cool with that assignment, thinking it would be nice to be indoors, in a cold hockey rink. Then last night I found out it’s inline skating, not ice, and that it’s outdoors. Bringing the sunscreen. See yas later.
