ALAIN VIGNEAULT RUMORS

Since the Rangers Are Resting So Am I

Inspired by this quote from Alain Vigneault yesterday regarding the Rangers three day break in between games… “It’s good for us, in a sense. Rest and recovery-wise, it’s excellent. And next week, obviously, we’ll have a lot of practice time…which you don’t get a chance for often in the regular season.” …I decided to take a little break today after pretty much going...

An early look at Rangers line deployment

Although the New York Rangers’ lines are in a state of flux due to injuries, we have seen enough games thus far to get a fair barometer on how Alain Vigneault will deploy his lines throughout the season. Earlier this month, prior to the start of the season, I took a guess at how AV […] The post An early look at Rangers line deployment appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

The Demise of Michael Kostka Has Been Greatly Exaggerated

After Michael Kostka’s disaster of a Rangers debut in which he gave up two ill advised turnovers during the home opener, you’d assume his next game would be more likely with the Charlestown Chiefs than the New York Rangers. However, when Alain Vigneault is your head coach, the chance for redemption is always an arms length away. With Dan Girardi day-to-day with a laceration...

Alain Vigneault calls out beleaguered Rangers defense

It hasn’t taken the Rangers long to go from a team in the Stanley Cup final to one that’s searching for some answers after three straight ugly losses. And Alain Vigneault made it clear following Wednesday’s practice where the blame should be placed. “[We’ve] had way too many turnovers from our defensemen,” the Rangers coach said. “As a whole, that group has really...

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault latest to expect little-to-no paternity leave for players

Rick Nash left Saturday's game to be with his wife after getting word that her water had broke. He's reported that all is well. All is well except perhaps with Rangers coach Alain Vigneault. Asked how long Rick's paternity leave would be, Vigneault replied, “Very short. 'Hi, I have to go to practice.’"What? No scheduled c-section? Or, even better for NYR...

Alain Vigneault, a blessing for the Rangers kids

Sometimes opportunity is about timing. Anthony Duclair, JT Miller and Kevin Hayes have made the Rangers at the right time because in Alain Vigneault they have the right coach to develop them into full time – and hopefully long term – Rangers. Vigneault won over a lot of the fan base last year by staying […] The post Alain Vigneault, a blessing for the Rangers kids appeared...

New York Rangers preview: defense and goalies

Tonight begins the New York Rangers 2014-15 season, their second under coach Alain Vigneault and his offensive-minded style of defensive play. Monday night’s announcement of Ryan McDonagh taking over duties as team Captain further establish coach Vigneault’s stance on his D. The new captain was last year’s team MVP and top defenseman, finishing the year with a career high 43...

New Rangers lines expecting different deployment strategies

If there was one thing proven about Alain Vigneault’s coaching style over the years, it’s that he tactically deploys his lines (after a whistle) depending on the zone start and the opposing line sent out. Last year we saw the Brian Boyle-Dominic Moore-Derek Dorsett line get the majority of their starts in the defensive zone, […] The post New Rangers lines expecting different...

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

The Rangers training camp roster came out yesterday and Alain Vigneault dropped a few key comments about the roster composition in his first press conference today. Hockey season is upon us, so for ***** and giggles, let’s embark on an exercise in futility and project the Rangers line combinations for the upcoming season. Reading the continue reading...

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...
