ALAIN VIGNEAULT RUMORS

Marty St. Louis May Play Center

from Andrew Gross of Ranger Rants, Following this morning’s roster cuts, the Rangers worked on the power play (which they’ll also do on Thursday). And one thing that jumped out was that Marty St. Louis was in the middle on one of the units, taking draws. St. Louis says, other than faceoffs, playing center on the power play is not really that big of an adjustment. ...

Rangers’ offense figures to be much improved, but what about the defense?

Just over a year into Alain Vigneault’s tenure as coach of the Rangers, the team’s roster already looks dramatically different than the one he inherited last June. Granted, roster turnover is nothing new for New York, but the moves made over the last 15 months have Vigneault’s fingerprints all over them. Black and Blueshirts like […] The post Rangers’ offense figures to...

Vigneault really likes Tanner Glass, which is unusual

If there was any doubt that Tanner Glass was signed by the Rangers because of his relationship with Alain Vigneault, it’s gone now. Glass is here because of Vigneault. With his contract and admiration from his first coach, Glass will get every opportunity to fail with the Rangers. Oh well, we all have that one continue reading...

Vigneault: “Errrr what’s Monte’s real name” (Danny Kristo)

Poor Danny Kristo. Just a young player trying to make the jump from the AHL to the big show and the one guy who controls his fate doesn’t even know his real name. Kudos to Alain Vigneault (okay, probably somebody down in Hartford) though, as far as hockey nicknames go, “Monte” for a player with continue reading...

Projecting Rangers line combinations in September, ’cause why not?

Vigneault backs off JT Miller comments

New York Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault may not have meant for his comments regarding JT Miller to be “pointy”, but they sure sounded like it at the time. Yesterday, Vigneault clarified his previous comments. Via Katie Strang: “I would say those comments might have been interpreted by you as pointed. I would say to you that 95 percent of young players have to figure it...

Grading the New York Rangers at the Olympic Break

As the NHL heads into the Olympic Break with about a quarter of the season left to play out, untold mayhem stirs on the horizon. The picture you see in the standings today will likely transform into something much different by April 13, at which point we can put a definitive stamp on each team’s (regular season) report card. But with the Olympics representing something of a mid...

Vigneault’s preseason approach suggests long term approach

Vigneault will be looking long term, not just trying to cope in October While the vast majority of NHL teams have trimmed their rosters down in preparation for the season, the Rangers are still carrying a large, oversized squad as they continue to work out what they need to cope with a harsh start to their regular season. The results haven’t been positive (yet) but when has the...
