Mark Messier is once again a part of the New York Rangers franchise. This time “the Captain” will act as the assistant to the GM. Many assume Messier is being groomed to replace current GM Glen Sather. Glen Sather and Messier have had great history together dating back to their days in Edmonton, with Sather as Messier’s coach. New York seems like a logical choice for Messier’s foray into the front office. He enjoyed some of the best years of his career in New York and in the fans minds is probably the most popular Ranger of all time. Messier famously led the Rangers to a Stanley Cup in 1994 after a long 54 year drought.
Messier will be joining a Rangers team that many consider to be on the upswing. With the right moves look for the Rangers at the top of Eastern Conference standings season.
