MSG showed part 2 of John Giannone’s conversation with Glen Sather:
- On what should be expected from Alain Vigneault, “The pace is quicker. It’s not to say that they weren’t relaxed but the atmosphere is a lot different. He is a different personality, he isn’t a yeller,he is very calm and collected. The pace is to get on the puck and out number people and move the puck quickly. We don’t have as many set breakout plays. It’s when you get the puck, move it and get in the play. The other part is getting the defense into the offense more. We have some great young defensemen who can really skate and their style was a little hindered by how we were playing. I think that will change a lot for the better.”

On the bonding and trip to Banff, “If we trained in Tarrytown, we would have had 3 games at home and 3 on the road. With MSG being transformed, we had to do something, we had to go somwhere. We have a new coaching staff. We don’t know them, they don’t know us. It has turned out nicely.”
Is the Stanley Cup realistic, “Absolutely. There are a lot of things that have to happen. The team has to jell, we need to become one unit, we need to be healthy. Health is a big part. You get into the playoffs, last year we had two guys with shoulder separations. There are people here who believe we can win, I believe we can win. It’s not unrealistic to think we can win the Stanley Cup.”
