Looking back at hysterical responses to Alain Vigneault coming to Philly


It’s officially been one year since Alain Vigneault joined Philadelphia and became the new bench boss for the Flyers. In just under one season, he turned this team that was in a rebuild into legitimate contenders for the Cup. 

When you think about it, it’s pretty crazy. 

Looking back to that day when the news was first announced though, fans were not optimistic … in the slightest. Honestly, after the ups and downs the city has endured with hockey in the past few years, it’s understandable — but there was not an ounce of positivity in sight. 

Thankfully, that’s not the case anymore … but it’s still hysterical to go back and look at the responses. Chances are, no one is feeling this way anymore, so have a quick laugh. 


It’s safe to say that everyone is thrilled to have Vigneault in Philadelphia. Let’s hope he’s somewhere preparing for the season to return while enjoying a martini or two.
