Will Mason Raymond follow Vigneault?

Could Raymond make the move to NYC? Earlier this week we had a look at Maxim Lapierre and whether he might be a player that follows his former coach Alain Vigneault to New York this summer. Another such candidate – and like Lapierre, a pending free agent – is Mason Raymond. The prospect of Raymond may excite fans a little more than the loyal foot soldier that is Lapierre. Raymond...

Whither Mike Gillis? It’s complicated Canucks fans!

Time to act It’s a complicated summer for Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis. For the first time in his tenure, he faces the need to tinker with the core of this hockey club and make some important choices. After inheriting a team with a significant number of pieces that would eventually take the team to the brink of glory in 2011 and needing the summers preceding only to maintain...

Jan Levine: My Take on Vigneault Hiring

The search is over. The at times meandering hunt for a new head coach for all intents and purposes ended Saturday with Alain Vigneault agreeing in principle to helm the Rangers. Of course, it took the threat of an excellent competing offer, rumored to be for five years for the Blueshirts to act, but it's clear by the commitment they made Vigneault while ignoring other candidates...

Samuelsson, Brown Could Join Vigneault's Staff

Pat Leonard at the Daily News reports that Ulf Samuelsson is a leading candidate to be hired as one of Alain Vigneault’s assistants. Samuelsson, who was the head coach of Modo (SEL) last season, has apparently left that job. moved to Phoenix and his looking for a job in the NHL. The former Rangers defenseman was an assistant in Phoenix from 2006 through 2011. Leonard...

30 Teams In 30 Days–Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks got the short end of the stick in the playoffs. The shortest end possible to say the least. Vancouver won the Northwest Division and was promptly broomed out of the playoffs by San Jose. That quick exit led to the firing of coach Alain Vigneault and what smells like regime change in Vancouver. Team Name: Vancouver Canucks Record: 26-15-7, 1st in Northwest, Lost 4-0 to...

Rangers to Officially Announce Vigneault Tomorrow at 11am

The Rangers have announced that they will hold a press conference tomorrow at Radio City Music Hall starting at 11 a.m. to officially announce that Alain Vigneault has been named the 35th head coach in franchise history. The press conference will be carried live on MSG.Network. It is rumored that Vigneault's contract is for five-years, $10 million. ...with the Stanley...

John Tortorella is the right choice to be the next head coach of the Vancouver Canucks

John Tortorella is the man that is most well suited to become the next head coach of the Vancouver Canucks. I will admit, this opinion took me a while to come around on. Tortorella is loud, rude, and has a temper. He is everything that Mike Gillis isn’t (style-wise anyway), but the man can coach. Pierre Lebrun reported today that John Tortorella, John Stevens, Scott Arniel and...

Don’t expect a huge change with Vigneault on board

Don’t expect a huge difference in performance under Vigneault. With Alain Vigneault on board, the Rangers are likely going to be changing their styles of play. But with that style change comes understanding what that change will bring. This is something we’ve covered a few times here, but it’s worth digging deeper into the puck possession metrics to see how exactly the Rangers...

Arniel a Candidate for Vigneault Assistant

Yesterday, I posted that Ulf Samuelsson and Newell Brown have been mentioned as possible additions to Alain Vigneault's team behind the Rangers bench. Now, Larry Brooks at the New York Post adds a new name to the mix saying that Scott Arniel, the former Blue Jackets head coach and long-time friend of Vigneault, could be an option. Arniel remains under contract with the Canucks...
