- How cute was that !!!
- Meeting Gritty on your first day on the job.
- Alain Vigneault didn’t really become the new Flyers coach until he said “Yes” to Gritty.
- Vigneault was hired Monday as the Flyers coach, replacing interim coach Scott Gordon.
- He spoke Thursday about wanting to check winning a Stanley Cup championship off his bucket list after a couple of close calls during his 16 seasons as coach of the New York Rangers, Vancouver Canucks and Montreal Canadiens, but he’s already started his tenure with some impressive new hardware.
- May they be blessed with many seasons of happiness.
