Mark Messier Disappointed With Rangers

Retired Hall of Fame forward Mark Messier has been serving as Rangers GM Glen Sathers special assistant for years, but when head coach John Tortorella was fired, Messier was hoping to take his place.

That didnt happen and the job will instead go to former Vancouver Canucks bench boss Alain Vigneault. The question now is what will Messiers next step be.

I dont really know what Mark is going to do, Sather told the New York Post. He was very disappointed when I called to tell him that we were going to hire Alain.

He said he wanted to take a few days and would call me, but we havent spoken since.
