Alain Vigneault Pre-Game In Las Vegas

“ After looking at the make up of my lines, and all the possibilities, there's probably 3 or 4 guys fighting for two spots. ”
- Alain Vigneault
“ I need to see Derek (Stepan). I know he's been one of our best young players, and I'm really looking forward to seeing where he fits in. ”
- Alain Vigneault
“ I think (seventh defenseman) is one of the questions tonight's game will answer---(Justin) Falk has been good, Stu (Bickel) has been good. Young Conor Allen brings a real good dimension as a puck-moving defenseman. ”
- Alain Vigneault
“ (Ryan Callahan) took contact this morning and yesterday. He's been asking for a while for this, and we've been on the very prudent side. ”
- Alain Vigneault
