All Alain Vigneault

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,

WILLES: In the 40-year history of this franchise, I don’t think there’s ever been the level of expectation which surrounds this team. How does that change things for you?

VIGNEAULT: We’ve been talking about that and we embrace that. I’m as excited as anyone else. I believe in today’s NHL there are windows for teams to have success and I think we’re in that window. Since I’ve been here we’ve grown every year and we’ve improved our personnel. I think we’re ready. We need to take the next step. We all have the same aspirations. They want to win. I want to win. The city wants to win.

So where do you have to be better to take the next step?

Obviously our road record needs to be better and our defence needs to be better. We had a real good offensive season and a lot of guys had breakout years. That should give them confidence and now they have to be better. I have to be better. My coaches have to be better. Management has to be better. We all have to be better.
