The Latest On The New York Rangers’ Coaching Hunt

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

The leader in the clubhouse would be Alain Vigneault. That, of course, excludes the other leader in the clubhouse named Mark Messier.

This is the state of the Rangers’ search for a coach that paused yesterday following Vigneault’s visit on Tuesday with general manager Glen Sather and front office personnel at the club’s organizational meetings in La Quinta, Calif.

The former Vancouver coach is believed to have made a favorable impression on Sather, though an offer to replace John Tortorella does not seem imminent. That could change, however, if the Stars make a time-sensitive offer to Vigneault, who has previously interviewed with Dallas GM (and former colleague) Jim Nill.

How ‘bout Sather get Messier to coach an AHL team or even an ECHL affiliate of the Rangers and see how they do first?  If Messier and Leetch have a two-year window with the big club instead and they bomb like Melrose and TBL, NYR owner Dolan’s gotta start making some hard decisions himself about Sather.
