Yesterday, Alain Vigneault made his way around the New York sports radio circuit.
Mike Francesa (WFAN):

…whoa, whoa, whoa. Did Vigneault say the Rangers were going to play "the right way" this year? Is he allowed to say that? I thought Torts had that phrase copyrighted.
…to me the biggest piece of news out of this interview is that Vigneault says that he wants to play Lundqvist 60 games. That means Biron is going to get over 20 starts. Big fan of cutting down on Lundqvist's workload to keep him fresh for, God willing, the postseason. Hope Biron is ready, because that's a big chunk of the season.
Michael Kay (ESPN Radio)…

…you think Vigneault is sick of answering questions about a power play he's never coached during a regular season game?
…interesting to hear Vigneault say it wasn't a hard decision to send Kreider down to Hartford. Ouch!
Vigneault also held a post practice presser, which you can watch here…

…why does Vigneault always have sucking candy in his mouth during interviews? Sort of annoying.
