This extension tells me the Gillis and Vigneault do see eye to eye. The only way Vigneault gets the boot next season is if the team really stinks up the joint. If Gillis wanted a fall guy he would of let Vigneault run out his contract instead he lets him know he will be around.

I recall many times where he benched the sedins usually in the 3rd period, and didn't even have them on the ice for the final minutes of many games where they were down. Sure the PP wasn't working, so Mike Kelly is responsible, it's pretty obvious Vigneault is putting the blame on others to save his own job. Remember Vigeanult is the HEAD COACH... what he says, is what happens.
I prefer it when a coach can make in game changes and play the hot hand. Since Kesler and Burrows are always flying and creating chances they put out there because they were the only ones doing so. Whats the point of putting players out there that are not skating? If it isn't working, try somethng else which is what Vigneault did.
