GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Alain Vigneault's motto for his first training camp with the New York Rangers was written on his players' backs as they went through a series of off-ice medical testing at the team's practice facility.
"They're walking around with a T-shirt that says, 'Clean slate, grab it,'" Vigneault said during his first press conference of training camp. "Everybody has a clean slate. Everybody is going to get a chance. It might not be a long chance, but they're going to get a chance, an opportunity, and it's up to them to grab it."
Never during his 20-minute session with the media on Wednesday did Vigneault reference something specific that happened previously in New York, and he shot down the notion that the team needs to go through a culture change after four-plus seasons with former coach John Tortorella.
