A frustrated Alain Vigneault lashed out at his underperforming players Friday night, suggesting it’s time for some of his unproductive forwards to step up and prove they truly belong in the NHL.
“Right now we have [defenceman] Kevin Bieksa who has eight goals and I think we’ve got six of our forwards who don’t have eight goals combined,” Vigneault said after watching the Canucks drop a 3-2 decision to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
“We think these guys are NHL players, that’s why we gave them NHL contracts. You have to perform like NHL players. It’s not normal that you have one D that has more goals than half your [forward] group.”
