ALAIN VIGNEAULT RUMORS

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 New York Rangers have recalled JT Miller today, just ahead of the first round playoff matchup with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Vigneault still mum on injured McDonagh

Ryan McDonagh, the Rangers’ No. 1 defenseman, continued his climb back toward the lineup on Wednesday, practicing with the team while wearing a non-contact yellow jersey. McDonagh will miss his fourth straight game on Thursday when the Blueshirts host the last-overall Sabres, as he is still recovering from the left-shoulder injury suffered April 1 in Vancouver.

Vigneault shuffles Rangers’ defensemen

It will continue to be replacement by committee for the Rangers as they try to fill the irreplaceable void left by the injury to Ryan McDonagh.

Alain Vigneault gives J.T. Miller some tough love

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...
