Rangers board fought all the time on who had more worth, better player, more upside etc. Would love to hear other voices in a different setting on how they fit in.
Vinny may have the most value since he's been a mentor to the younger players. Dorsett credited his help for his offensive increase last season (12 goals, which equaled the number of goals he scored in the previous 3 seasons). Hopefully Vinny can be a good influence on the young forwards, including Anisimov and especially Johansen and Atkinson.
Vinny called out the coaching staff on not practicing at full game speed and seems to be one of the strong voices for change in the organization.
Getting players to live up to their potential is the biggest struggle the Jackets have. There's been efforts to bring in various veterans to change things, and Vinny is the first one that has actually worked out.
