It’s over! It’s finally over! Look, I love summer about as much as anyone you’ll find.

Tonight, the Rangers’ officially start the unofficial start to the season; still with me...

Vigneault really likes Tanner Glass, which is unusual

If there was any doubt that Tanner Glass was signed by the Rangers because of his relationship with Alain Vigneault, it’s gone now. Glass is here because of Vigneault.

Vigneault: “Errrr what’s Monte’s real name” (Danny Kristo)

Poor Danny Kristo. Just a young player trying to make the jump from the AHL to the big show and the one guy who controls his fate doesn’t even know his real name. Kudos to Alain Vigneault (okay, probably somebody down in Hartford) though, as far as hockey nicknames go, “Monte” for a player with continue reading...

Questions Facing The New York Rangers

from Tal Pinchevsky of NHL.com, How will the Rangers supplement the forward depth they lost? -- In his first year as Rangers coach, Alain Vigneault rolled all four lines and got consistent scoring from the top three units. He'll be challenged to do that again this season. New York got key plays from Richards and Pouliot, who signed a five-year, $20 million contract with...

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.

What The Rangers Kids Can Bring-Part 1

Lindberg in Hartford With the New York Rangers being in a bind with cap space currently, chances are they will take a chance bringing up some younger players to fill in roles when needed. They are short, especially when its comes to offense, on the 3rd and 4th lines and that’s where these players will fit in. Alain Vigneault has also mentioned wanting some younger players to get...

JT Miller Should Get Huge Chance This Season

With the Rangers cap situation less than ideal, it’s not very likely that they’ll have the ability to replace both Brad Richards and Beniot Pouliot’s through free agency or a trade. While Glen Sather will most assuredly find a way to acquire a substitute for one of the two, it’s looking more and more likely JT Miller, along with his $894,167 per year salary, will be designated...

Alain Vigneault and John Tortorella: Crossing Paths

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports, Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Before the 2013-14 NHL season, Alain Vigneault and John Tortorella switched roles.

Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider with the full transcript of Darryl Sutter post-game, On an inclination in 2012 that the team would be capable of winning multiple Cups: We did it a different way in ’11-12. That’s something that I don’t think could ever happen again if you go back to that because of winning as a road team all the time. This year was totally different....

Vigneault: 'Thank God for soft ice'

After Game 3, New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault was downright glum about his team’s perceived bad “puck luck.” The coin tosses seemed to flip dramatically in favor of his team in Game 4, however, so it’s no surprise that Vigneault was in a good mood on Wednesday night. In assessing the Los Angeles Kings’ two chances in which pucks stopped within a breath of crossing...
