ALAIN VIGNEAULT RUMORS

Alain Vigneault and John Tortorella: Crossing Paths

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports, Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Before the 2013-14 NHL season, Alain Vigneault and John Tortorella switched roles. The two probably crossed each other’s path in an airport, as Tortorella was let go as head coach of the New York Rangers, but found a new gig in coaching the Vancouver Canucks. Before that, Vigneault was axed in his leading role in Vancouver...

Montreal Canadiens head coach Michael Therrien was unhappy that New York Rangers assistant coach Ulf Samuelsson was watching his team’s Saturday practice and asked him to leave.

Is NHL Linesman Scott Driscoll Partly Responsible For Carcillo Suspension?

from Sean Fitz-Gerald of the National Post,  New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault has suggested that NHL linesman Scott Driscoll is partly to blame for inciting winger Dan Carcillo in a chaotic sequence of events during Thursday’s playoff game, a sequence that led to a 10-game suspension.... “My biggest disappointment in the whole thing is probably what’s happening...

New York Rangers Coach Alain Vigneault Talked With The Media Today

Q.  In your own words, what can you tell us about what the day was like and being there to support Marty? COACH VIGNEAULT:  Well, what I can say is that the New York Rangers family has been touched by a little Quebec family in a deep, profound way.  Today was very emotional, very moving time for our team to have the opportunity to be there and share that with Marty and his...

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...

The lines Alain Vigneault found success with are about to be changed, probably for good

The return of Derek Dorsett plus the call up of J.T. Miller minus Mats Zuccarello and maybe Ryan Callahan equals…? I still can’t get used to Alain Vigneault’s steady line combinations after four years of John Tortorella’s incessant juggling, but Vigneault has stuck with the same combinations for quite some time now.  It’s worth nothing that the Rangers finally turned...

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.

Evaluating Alain Vigneault seven games in

Don’t jump to any conclusions after seven games Before the already numerous Alain Vigneault haters get their tail feathers ruffled, remember that we are only SEVEN games into the season, so none of this means a whole lot yet.  However, Vigneault was brought in to implement widespread changes to the team’s tactics and approach to the game, so we are understandably keeping a close...

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...
