    Smart move by AV to take this job. The Flyers are a good car to drive for the next several years. So much talent in that system.

    Great for Philly, not sure it's super great news for Fantasy pools the way he distributes ice time

    I don't hate this hire. Vigneault always seems to get a lot of out his guys.

    that's interesting, can you elaborate? I'm not familiar with what kind of reputation he has in that regard.

    I think this is particularly important with the Flyers as they have the talent to stack lines or have legit scorers spread across 3 lines. I've always wondered how they intend to fit all of their top sixers in the top six, especially with Frost and Farrabee knockin on the door in the next few seasons.

    he seemed to always be push his scorers with offensive zone starts so that may help the big guns. not sure about spreading out ice times though.

    Interested to see where PH stands on this. I think he's been really great at getting a lot out of his teams so I love this for Philly.

    He wasn't my first choice, but also not my last choice of the major possibilities list in the Philly Inquirer article on Sunday.

    I'm a bit worried about how he'll use the young players based on what happened with the Rangers, but his overall track record is good.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1-2 backup G's, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: F Andersen
    Backup G: Holtby
    D: Hainsey, M Reilly, Carlson, Gustafsson, Klingberg, Letang,
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, MacKinnon
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, Guentzel
    F3: Benn, Seguin, Pavelski,
    F4: Point, Stamkos, Tavares

    Bench:
    G: Bobrovsky
    D: Gardiner, Gostisbehere, Schultz, Werenski
    F: Bailey, Johnsson, Killorn, Labanc, JT Miller, Necas, Tuch, Voracek

    Reserve: Datsyuk

    When he coached Vancouver one of the largest, most common media/fan complains was that he played the Sedins 18 min/night at most. As dominant as they were when AV was there... why not 19:00+/night. When Torts came in, he went a bit overboard and droned them up to 22min/night.

    With the Rangers - this was the knock on him. There were a couple years the Rangers flew out of the gate scoring a lot of goals. That production was evenly spread over 3 lines - all getting 16ish min/game. There was no true #1 or even #3 line. His main philosophy is to play 5 man units, move the puck up the ice with speed, high tempo and keep the intensity/pressure on the opposition at all times. Limiting ice time, length of shifts to more evenly distribute over all 4 lines - keeps everyone a bit fresher. He's done this in two cities now over the last decade.

    It won't surprise me to see him split up Philly's top line to spread the wealth and create a more balanced attack there too. He's got a lot of weapons and some really good prospects coming. This could turn into a boom for fantasy Philly owners, or it could create eight 65pt-80pt scorers, instead of 4 with a couple 85+pt scorers.

    Giroux will likely still get his. I mean, also has to be remembered Hank won the Hart with AV & 104pts.

    Was there a fantasy impact article and I just missed it?

    As a Frost owner I'm wary since Vigneault is not my favourite for developing young players.

    Nope. I don't think there has been an article for AV, Quenn or McClellan
