Rangers hire Alain Vigneault

Postby penny lane on Sat Jun 15, 2013 1:59 pm

Renaud Lavoie ‏@RenLavoieRDS 58s Rangers players had a say in the decision to release Tortorella. They did had a say in the decision on Alain Vigneault being the next coach.


NYR players with input into their coach.

I think the stars were also interested in Vigneault. John Stevens for the Stars ?

Good hire. They were looking for a more offensive minded coach.

I'll laugh if Torts goes to Vancouver and then in his first loss, complains about the other team diving.

Great fit for the Rangers. I thought they'd go this direction from the get-go...this a good guy for the younger players, the more offensive guys, he can take off the chains a little bit and let them breathe a little. MDZ, Anton Stralman on the blueline. Lots of talent up front. Have to really re-think Brad Richards situation, might be utilized as Henrik Sedin. Not as good of a playmaker, but a good one. Also not a wonderful skater or particularly sharp defensively, really blossomed under AV in Vancouver.
