Read: The Alain Vigneault Approach To Coaching and How To Have Fun

Alain VigneaultShortly after he signed a contract extension with the Vancouver Canucks, Alain Vigneault sat down with the Canucks website for a wide ranging interview.

In that interview, Vigneault described his approach to coaching and how he deals with his players.

Vigneault said, “I think at the end of the day it’s a business and my approach has always been to take a business like approach. We have a job to do and I really feel that in this performance based business there are things that need to be done in a business like approach and that is what we do.”

He added “I always keep in mind though that this is a game and games need to be fun and that the only way that I know to have fun in this game is to win. That is how I make sure both those ingredients are there. If we make sure that we do the work that needs to be done then the results will be there, we will win and if we win we will have fun.”

 His players in Vancouver were very receptive to this approach from Vigneault.
