Alain Vigneault: Master Motivator

After the Rangers mutiny against Führer Tortorella back in the Spring of 2013, conventional wisdom was that the Rangers would replace him with a players coach.

Inspired by this quote from Alain Vigneault yesterday regarding the Rangers three day break in between games… “It’s good for us, in a sense. Rest and recovery-wise, it’s excellent.

The Demise of Michael Kostka Has Been Greatly Exaggerated

After Michael Kostka’s disaster of a Rangers debut in which he gave up two ill advised turnovers against the Islanders, you’d assume his next game would be more likely with the Charlestown Chiefs than the New York Rangers. However, when Alain Vigneault is your head coach, the chance for redemption is always an arms length away. With […]

In case you weren’t aware, the Islanders are moving to Barclays Center next season, so this marks the final year they’ll occupy the Coliseum. To help celebrate the retirement of the asbestos laden barn, my friends at We Bleed Blue have organized a Coliseum invasion on January 27th allowing Rangers fans one last chance to serenade the “Mausoleum” with a “We Want Fishsticks” chant before the Icelanders take up residence in the hockey hotbed of Brooklyn…

It’s amazing how things can change in the course of a few days. Early last week, we were giddy about the chemistry Anthony Duclair was forming with Martin St. Louis and Rick Nash. Now just two days after the 19-year wonderkid was stapled to the bench for all but one shift in the third period […]

I was prepared to draft an article today digging into the questionable decisions of Alain Vigneault the last few days; the line decisions yesterday as well as the roster moves today. However, I soon realized it would probably end up becoming the same cyclical, rehashed arguments regarding analytics, intangibles, and so on. Instead, let’s do […]
