Would The LA Kings Be Interested In Alain Vigneault?

10/20/2018 at 5:31pm EDT

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

- As of late in the week, no team had contacted the Rangers for permission to speak to Alain Vigneault since he was dismissed within hours of delivering his valedictory address following the team’s final game of last season in Philadelphia.

But we wonder if that might change within the not-too-distant future. Specifically, we would suggest that Vigneault could become a person of interest in Los Angeles if president Luc Robitaille and general manager Rob Blake grow impatient with third-year man John Stevens behind the bench.

The Kings are a win-now team that hasn’t won enough or played nearly well enough these first couple of weeks of the season...

- Asking for a friend with the initials SY, but will the Red Wings make a change behind the bench in promoting assistant Dan Bylsma or will they allow Jeff Blashill to remain in place for the duration so as not to threaten the club’s hold on 31st-overall and thus the largest number of ping pong balls in the Jack Hughes sweepstakes?

- So I have typed “Presidents’ Trophy” hundreds of times and I guess I would like someone to please explain why the NHL awards a Presidents’ Trophy when the league hasn’t had a president since John Ziegler completed his term more than a quarter of a century ago?

more on the first topic plus other hockiey notes...

At the time of this post, the Kings are losing to the Sabres in LA 4-0 after 2.
