Rangers fire coach Alain Vigneault after missing playoffs

The will begin searching for his replacement immediately.

The New York Rangers have fired head coach Alain Vigneault after missing the playoffs for the first time in eight years, the team announced on Saturday.

The head coach fully expects to be back behind the bench next season, despite not yet discussing his situation with general manager Jeff Gorton or president Glenn Sather.

Journalist, Children Shot Dead by Israel: Who Is The Terrorist Now?
In Khan Younis, also in Gaza's south, Usama Khamis Musallam Qudeih, 29, died after he was shot in the head by soldiers. The Palestinian Journalists' Syndicate said that a total of six journalists were hit by gunfire on Friday.


Vigneault boasted a a solid 226-147-37 record in five seasons with NY.

Combined with his four-year stint with the Montreal Canadiens and seven years with the Vancouver Canucks, Vigneault has gone 648-434-98 with 35 ties in the regular season, in addition to a 68-71 playoff record.

But with management committed to a full-fledged rebuild, they apparently believe the Blueshirts are better suited with someone new to lead a younger team.

Regional unemployment rate jumped to almost six percent in March
Almost twice as many black Americans as white Americans are unemployed, as measured on a percentage basis. February our jobless rate was 5.3 percent, down from 5.9 percent in January and 6.0 percent in December.


Vigneault did a great job for the Rangers, instantly gaining the respect of his players after the team fired John Tortorella in 2013.

"The Rangers have an incredible fan base and I will cherish many special moments, especially our trip to the Stanley Cup Finals".

Because of that track record, Vigneault should be a candidate to coach in the National Hockey League next season, which would take the Rangers off the hook for his contract, which was extended in early 2017.
