Vigneault Talks Richards & Free Agency

“ My understanding is we have some good young forwards that have the chance to maybe play with us this year. ”
- Alain Vigneault
“ Today in free agency we'll be looking to add some depth to our team, but I'm getting the sense from (our scouts and front office) that we have a lot of good young players that need an opportunity to show what they can do. ”
- Alain Vigneault
“ Since I haven't seen Brad (Richards) the past couple years, especially this year, I wasn't part of the decision process. But everybody feels that Brad has tremendous amount of upside and has been a great player in this league, and can continue to do that for the New York Rangers. ”
- Alain Vigneault
