In the 1980's Tom Mcvie coached Vigneault in the AHL, Maine Mariners. Gordie Clark was also coached by Mcvie in Maine.

The connections always seem to be there.

Torts will get the Vancouver job and they will meet the Rangers in the SCF for a 20 year reunion.

Overall, I think the Rangers can expect what the lines would be going into a given game... During a losing streak, more often than not, it is much more likely that AV tries for the line to work itself out, before mixing things up... Doing the same thing, over and over... Sometimes, it works itself out... Sometimes, he mixes up the lines... But he does try the same thing over and over, and is much more patient than the fans before he makes drastic roster decisions, usually... Some players are given a much longer leash than others, as well... If some make a mistake, immediate change... If others, they are free to work it out themselves, game after game after game...

As a rule of thumb, AV mixes lines about 5 to 10 games after fans have been calling for it, IMO... If the Canucks continued into the playoffs, it was only a matter of time before Roy and Higgins would have been reunited (like the majority of fans wanted from the start)...

C'mon AV, bring in fellow French-Canadian Guy Boucher as your assistant coach!

While some minor contract details are still to be finalized, Alain Vigneault has an agreement to be NYR head coach.

Yeah, I mean you have plenty of ex-head coaches becoming assistant coaches. Why not Boucher?

Hey, you guys just got AV, leave Boucher alone. We need candidates too! I'll be pissed if we go with Torts.

What about John Stevens? It seems like it's a two-horse race between Torts and Stevens to become the HC in Vancouver

Yeah I would prefer Stevens, don't think Torts is our guy.

Congrats on the AV hire, I think it will be good for NY especially with you guys having Lundqvist.

The feeling was if Messier wanted the job,Sather would give it to him. Dreger basically said it three days ago. Most people believe its Messier's job. Dreger thought Vigneault was going to be the Stars HC. Someone said no to Messier. Sather? Ownership? Now name Gorton as Sather's successor.

He's a serviceable #6/7 defenseman whom AV loved to promote and play above his ability.

AV loved Aaron Rome. That's all there is to it.

I don't know, I think it was Sather. Hiring Messier really would have been stupid, and I think Sather is smart enough to know that.

Thanks! Any other Vigneault insider jokes? I know about him laughing hysterically at Vern Fiddler
Does he have hot daughters?
