New York Rangers all-time great Mark Messier has announced that he will step down from his role within the organization. He made the decision to turn his focus to developing the Kingsbridge National Ice Center. Messier views this as an opportunity to help expand the game of hockey in the New York area and thanked the Rangers organization for giving him the opportunity to contribute.
Messier went on to explain that this was not at all in response to the recent decision to hire new head coach Alain Vigneault. The Rangers recently fired former coach John Tortorella who was with the team for five seasons before the Boston Bruins eliminated them in the second round of the 2013 playoffs.

Messier said, “I harbor no hard feelings toward Glen or the Rangers. This is a personal choice I am making to create a program in the New York area that will give our children more choices and opportunities in the future. I wish the Rangers nothing but the best in the future.”

The New York Rangers fired head coach John Tortorella last week, and all of a sudden the job is the hottest commodity in the National Hockey League.
Rumors have swirled over Lindy Ruff and Alain Vigneault being the early front runners for the job, but two hockey legends have expressed interest in the position.
Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier are both interested in becoming the next head coach of the Rangers, and both have close ties with GM Glen Sather. Sather was the head coach of the Edmonton Oilers when the two players won four Stanley Cups north of the border in the late 1980s, but have little to no head coaching experience.
Gretzky hasn't coached since 2009 when he was behind the bench of the Phoenix Coyotes, in what many would call a failed head coaching experiment. He went 146-161-24 in four years with Phoenix, missing the playoffs in every season and never finishing greater than fourth in the Pacific Division.Read more... Join the Conversation...
