03:56 PM ET 06.21 | In one of the less surprising moves of the offseason, the New York Rangers have hired former Vancouver Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault to fill the same role with their team. After a week of flirting and heavy petting, the Rangers and Vigneault have made it official and are ready move on into the future together. "Alain Vigneault has had success throughout his career and his coaching style is a perfect fit for the Rangers," Rangers general manager Glen Sather said, via NHL.com. "We feel very fortunate to have him leading this team as we continue to pursue our ultimate goal of winning the Stanley Cup." The Rangers put Vigneault on their radar after they fired former head coach John Tortorella. It was indicated early on in the process that the Rangers could be pursuing or at least holding out for Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma, but when he was handed a contract extension it was clear the Pens weren't going to cut him loose.

I object! That's WAY out of bounds! How come they don't penalize themselves? I say they should delete themselves and send an email scolding themselves for their transgression!

Alain Vigneault must've been showing Glen Sather the finer points of French kissing.
