The other thing about bringing Vigneault on board is that he's your replacement should they decide to get rid of Laviolette. Could be worth a call anyways and see if he's interested in coming on board...
Lavy isn't John Stevens. You aren't going to bring on his replacement to his own staff. Also, I am sure AV has earned enough cred not to take an asst position.
I think Lavy surprises people next season and has the team playing a more structured game. I don't mean conservative or defensive but better at executing breakouts and back checking.
