Rangers Style of Play Suits Stempniak’s Game

If you’re going to succeed in Alain Vigneault’s system, you’re going to have to be able to skate and forecheck. Thankfully for the Rangers, it sounds as if those are two of Lee Stempniak’s strong suits (via Blueshirts United)… “The style of play they play is well-suited to my game, and I think I can contribute, come in and help the team win games. I think this is a really...

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.

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...

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.
