I disagree. Vigneault has a great deal of input into personnel decisions, and without revisiting the events leading up to last year's trade deadline, let's just say the writing was on the wall. And Vigneault was holding the pen.
Clearly, the bucks stops wih Gillis, and he's the one making the final call, but let's not kid ourselves. Vigneault was right there in the war room. (Tossing a football, if I recall.)
