ALAIN VIGNEAULT RUMORS

Rangers coach Vigneault defends forward's power outage

The New York Rangers have struggled to score throughout the playoffs, and forward Rick Nash is a big reason why. Nash has just two goals in the postseason despite finishing the regular season ranked third in the NHL in goals (42). Coach Alain Vigneault acknowledged that the Rangers need Nash to step up soon if they want to be in the best position to succeed. "I mean, again, he’s...

Is Alain Vigneault getting out-coached?

Yesterday, I wrote about how the Washington Capitals are succeeding at getting the New York Rangers away from their rush-based offense, forcing them to play more of a cycle game. Generally speaking, the Caps have adjusted their breakouts and neutral zone play to limit passing and skating lanes, which forces the Rangers into more of Read more → The post Is Alain Vigneault getting...

Focus turns to Alain Vigneault as Rangers head into postseason

It’s almost unfair. Every article I read about coach of the year candidates, Alain Vigneault barely gets any ink. As beloved as AV is by the NY beat, outside of the metro, he might as well be a ghost. Deciding who should be the coach of the year is almost an impossible exercise. No one Read more → The post Focus turns to Alain Vigneault as Rangers head into postseason appeared...

The Presidents’ Trophy doesn’t matter, but it’s still something to be proud of

The Presidents’ Trophy is a nice feather in Alain Vigneault’s cap and deserved recognition for the remarkable regular season the Rangers are about to complete. But is it really worth anything? All the trophy does is extend the home-ice advantage earned by winning the conference for one more round, and of course that only matters if Read more → The post The Presidents’ Trophy...

New York Rangers preview: defense and goalies

Tonight begins the New York Rangers 2014-15 season, their second under coach Alain Vigneault and his offensive-minded style of defensive play. Monday night’s announcement of Ryan McDonagh taking over duties as team Captain further establish coach Vigneault’s stance on his D. The new captain was last year’s team MVP and top defenseman, finishing the year with a career high 43...

Alain Vigneault rips Canadiens for booting Rangers assistant

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. Samuelsson eventually got up and left, but Rangers general manager Glen Sather and assistant coach Dan Lacroix showed up a short while after that to watch Montreal skate. Therrien said Saturday that there...

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. But with the Olympics representing something of a mid...
