Doctors cleared him to play maybe missed something, AV didn't believe Cody because the medical staff said he was good to go, turns out there was something the staff missed I believe, my memory is fuzzy there so you can google the proper facts, thats the just of it though.


However, I liked AV and was sad that his time in Vancouver was over, that's not to say I didn't agree because I do but I most certainly don't hate the guy, he and Luongo came in together and did fantastic things for the team while they were here, I remember before those two showed up and I am very great full for their hard work.

Hes a good coach with a personality I quite liked. I hope he does well.

Does AV try to bring some of his boys over? Bieksa?

I'm wondering if the Rangers would leave it up to him to find his staff or make some recommendations
It's always going to be a joint decision. With so much rumbling irt coaching within the organization, in the league, AV is presumably going to get to put his choices but I'd reckon Slats is going to want to address the franchise's needs as well as the team's needs with his familiarity AND address AV's weaknesses.

Oops. Re-read tweet. Meant to say it's believed Stars had a substantial offer for AV...until he met with NYR's Dolan and co.

you'd be surprised; it was reported Management advised AV to not play Bieksa more than 25 minutes a game, which he did anyways, so if you could send back a RHD+ it may be possible

Kassian had a back issue before the season started in January. Then he re-injured his back in March.

Could see Stralman+ being moved for Bieksa.

would love to move him. Damn that NTC. I'm not a fan, he's far too inconsistent and has been riding his 2011 reputation for far to long.

You know Sather and the rest of the front office discussed everything with Vigneault. Gillis took a shot at Vigneault about needing to play more young players. VAN has done such a piss poor job in scouting and drafting players. That's on Gillis and his scouts. Where are the young players in their system? Look at that roster.
A lot of truth in this post, we don't have a lot of NHL ready prospects. Another player that came up recently was Chis Tanev. AV has his favorites, but so do most coaches. If the rookie/young player performs he will get ice time, they have a short leash, but a lot of time that is for the best.

People point to Schroeder and Kassian, but when JS was sent down he responded great and produced at over a point per game and would have been back if not for his injury. Kassian also had some injury issues this year and had trouble playing a ton of minutes.

Hah, I knew it

I only saw him in the elevator for like two seconds with Ticinelli so I wasn't sure if it was him and I didn't want to stare, but I was pretty confident.

The Canuck doctors misdiagnosed Hodgson's back injury.

Just back and glad to see the good news on Vigneault. Get it done, let him find and gather his staff. Then the Rangers can prepare and go into the draft with a concise plan, take it through July 5th. Its going to be an interesting month or so coming. Training camp will also be very interesting.

Ranger fans bemoaned Girardi's presence on the powerplay, but with the lack of any righthand shot, it was based on necessity (unless you enjoyed watching Richards circle the wrong direction towards the boards - over and over again).
Except Girardi didn't play on his off side so handedness didn't matter - we still couldn't taken one timers.

Bieksa has a $4.6M cap hit for the next 3 years. The Rangers have their cap issues to deal with in the next 13 months.

Question for those who remember: Did Torts ever speak to Dolan in a formal capacity before the hiring?

Bingo, and I don't remember AV's comments being as bad as a lot of people have said. I remember thinking that the comments were blown out of proportion (cause Van media has never font that before )
