Alain Vigneault is as stubborn a coach as they come. That same stubbornness was key when he first got the job in 2013-14 and the Rangers floundered for the first few months trying to learn his system. In doing so, the Rangers learned to play a high tempo game and made their first trip to the Stanley Cup Final in 20 years. Read more
