Read: Alain Vigneault’s Philosophy and the Rangers Roster

Alain Vigneault, Glen SatherDuring his introductory press conference, Alain Vigneault talked about how when he first got to Vancouver the team played more of a defensive style as they waited for their skill players to develop.

Over the years, players like the Sedin twins and Ryan Kesler brought their skills to another level and the Canucks became one of the highest scoring teams in the league.

Vigneault said that players need to be put into a system that maximizes their talent and that high skill players need more latitude and need to understand the times when they need to make something out of nothing.

He said that after speaking with Glen Sather, Jeff Gorton and Jim Schoenfeld he sees the Rangers as a team that can have two good scoring lines and provide a lot of balance across the lineup.

Glen Sather has said that he expects a more offensive style from the Rangers this season.
