Please post, in as much detail as possible, explanations and examples that show your reasoning for why you believe that Alain Vigneault:
-Dislikes young players and does not give them a chance.
-Dislikes skilled players and instead favours lesser players.
-Is bad at developing young players.

Can we please do this instead of the usual flyby mentioning this in other threads?

Basically, the people who subscribe to this view all think that newbies should be thrown on the 1st or 2nd line and left there for a couple of months to "develop" because, Lord knows, the priority should be to develop those players, not to win games. Tony Gallagher was whining on Team 1040 this morning about players like Kassian getting 6 min a game on the 4th line. People forget what this team was like when AV became coach - he has demonstrated that he knows how to develop young players.
