This would be so awesome, and not for any of the reasons that all the retread ex-Oilers think.

"We could just, like, tell them to do what we used to do." "That totally worked in Phoenix." "And I could make every Saturday a Guaranteed Victory Night."

So this would be fantastic:

Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier are both interested in taking over for John Tortorella as the next coach of the Rangers, The Post has confirmed.

Make this happen, Glen. Please. PLEASE!

It is unsure if either Messier or Gretzky have made their wants clear to Rangers general manager Glen Sather...

Oohhh, so this is more of a "hey, I don't want to be tacky, but get the word out please" thing? Doh.

Anyway, on this topic, this article was hilarious: New York Rangers should hire Mark Messier to replace John Tortorella - ESPN New York

...especially for this:

And the part of the coaching job description that does fit Messier perfectly is the idea of taking a group of players who are down and telling them, "Follow me, boys."

Yes, FOLLOW THE LEGEND INTO BATTLE.

Except ... the legend is TOO OLD FOR BATTLE.

Whatever. Light a cigar and do it, Glen. It will complete your legacy.
