Vigneault's Strategy

It's been almost a week since Alain Vigneault has been named head coach of the New York Rangers and a lot of you have been wondering what kind of style we're going to see from the Blueshirts under his leadership. Here's what Vigneault has said so far... “I like my teams to play the right way, which is: If you’ve got room to make a play, make a play. If you’ve...

Vigneault the perfect coach for Zuccarello?

Zuccarello scores pretty goals, will AV get more out of him? As Glen Sather talked about needing a changing in coaching styles and Alain Vigneault talked about giving his skill players ‘more latitude’, you could get a sense that next season has the potential to be a coming out party for a little Norwegian winger that never seemed to match up with John Tortorella. Could Alain...

Richards Hasn't Been Informed of Buyout Decision Yet

Brad Richards admitted to Larry Brooks at the New York Post that he has not yet been informed of the Rangers decision to buy him out or not... “I would love to be back but I haven’t been told anything. That’s the truth.” Apparently, Richards was responding to a Twitter rumor that stated he told his caddie during a Sunday round of golf with Mark Messier that he knew...

Richards, Clowe set for bounce-back seasons

Both poised for bounce-back years. Will they do it? (Scott Levy/NHLI via Getty Images) It’s no secret: Brad Richards and Ryane Clowe had disastrous seasons. Richards was a non-factor for the Rangers on the powerplay –something he was brought in to help bring back to respectability– and was even a healthy scratch for the last few games of the postseason. Clowe didn’t score...

Rangers Could Be Waiting on Buyout Pool Before Making Decision on Richards

As of this afternoon, Brad Richards has not been contacted by the Rangers regarding a possible buyout. Larry Brooks at the New York Post says one of the reasons could be that the Blueshirts are waiting to see the pool of players that are being bought out by other teams... "There is a sense that the Rangers would prefer not to exercise the buyout but want to retain the option...

Brad Richards- Buyout Or Not

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Richards, who struggled through the worst season of his career in the absence of training camp and a defined offseason during which he was involved in CBA negotiations, has seven years with an annual cap charge of $6.67 million remaining on his contract. There is a sense that the Rangers would prefer not to exercise the buyout but...

Rick Nash Is The Perfect Fit For Alain Vigneault’s System

Alain Vigneault is the new head coach of the New York Rangers, and the one man who is probably the happiest about the arrival of A.V. on Broadway is Rick Nash. At Vigneault’s introductory press conference on Friday, I thought he had a lot of interesting things to say that I didn’t necessarily expect. He [...]

What can we expect from Rick Nash under Alain Vigneault?

Can AV turn Nash into a top 10 offensive star? Despite a solid first season on Broadway, Rick Nash surely did not reach the heights his talent demands, nor did he become the irresistible force many anticipated. Not over a full season anyway. Some critics will argue that John Tortorella’s system stifled players such as Rick Nash (though the powerplay certainly didn’t help his...

New Coach for the Blueshirts; Changes for Team

The New York Rangers recently hired Alain Vigneault as their new head coach, replacing the recently departed John Tortorella who ironically replaced him as head coach of the Vancouver Canucks.  This writer wishes that organization the best of luck with Torts considering how things went south towards the end of his Rangers tenure. Vigneault is [...]

Lundqvist Extension Talks Begin; Richards Decision Coming Shortly; No Commitment on Clowe

Bob McKenzie at TSN reports that the Rangers and Henrik Lundqvist's representatives were to begin contract extension talks last night. ...i think if Lundqvist signs a contract with the Rangers, he wants it to be long term. No way he's going to sign a five-year deal that would put him into free agency during his late 30s and likely the beginning of his decline. He'...

Canucks set to welcome Tortorella

The Vancouver Canucks are expected to introduce John Tortorella as their new head coach on Tuesday. Tortorella, the recently fired coach of the New York Rangers, arrived in Vancouver on Friday amid reports he was the choice to replace the fired Alain Vigneault. If all goes as expected, Tortorella and Vigneault will end up trading teams. Vigneault was hired last week as Tortorella...

Hey Vancouver Canucks fans…it’s time to believe in Torts!

Welcome To Van City John! One got the sense Tuesday, as John Tortorella addressed the Vancouver media for the very first time, that this is the beginning of a brand new relationship. Vigneault wasn’t an outspoken coach but he was lively and provided personality. Torts gives off an aura that’s on a completely superior level than most coaches around the league though and it was...

Messier leaves Rangers organization

Fresh off the decision to hire Alain Vigneault as head coach, Rangers legend Mark Messier has left the organization to assist in the development of the Kingsbridge Armory Ice Rink in the Bronx. Messier issued a statement to the media: “I would like to thank the New York Rangers and particularly Glen Sather for giving me the opportunity over the last four years to work with the...
