I think this is an excellent move for Vancouver. Seeing as Vigneault is not a player coach (in comparison to a guy like Pat Quinn), it would make sense to add an assistant who communicates well with the players and gives them someone they can confide with. His leadership qualities hopefully will make up for the a lack of experience behind the bench, but seeing as he's played over 1000 games in the NHL I can't see it being too much of an issue.
However, I still hope that they add at least one more assistant coach who specializes in coaching special teams in order to improve the mediocre powerplay and return the penalty kill back to the form it was two years ago.
