Alain Vigneault was asked about former Rangers Anton Stralman earlier today and said that Stralman played a major role for the Rangers and big minutes against top players.
He then added, “every team has cap issues, and we had cap issues at that time.
Stralman though disputed what Vigneault said and mentioned that the salary cap had nothing to do with him not coming back to the Rangers. (Gross)
He said that contract talks were not “handled nicely” and that the Rangers should have had the “respect” to tell him they wanted to go a different way. (Gross)
