Ranger-watchers have probably noticed something for a while: coach/GM Glen Sather loves him some Mark Messier. Whereas most teams would be a bit reluctant to lean on a 43-year-old man, Sather seems quite content to place him high on the depth chart.
The reason?
Could it be that Sather is trying to enhance the lengend of Mark Messier?
Is this smart coaching?
Maybe if you’re coaching in a senior league.
