You can't control the opposition, but you can control how you play, your energy level, your intensity on the ice. That's what we're going to do.

— Alain Vigneault

The most courageous Alain Vigneault quotes that may be undiscovered and unusual

Guys, I don't want to tell you half-truths, unless they're completely accurate.


We brought him [Raffi Torres] in because he was an emotional, physical player.

He's had nothing but a great attitude and a great work ethic with us all year long. He comes to play, prepares himself real well. We need him to play the way he does. You know, he's a little bit sometimes outside the box, but you've got to let him be who he is.

I played with Joey Mullen back in Salt Lake City before he got called up to St.
