*Charlie looks at just why Alain Vigneault has so much faith in Travis Sanheim. [The Athletic]

*Our old pal Nick Schultz is finding his way as a player development coach. Bad players, good coaches, as they say. [Courier-Post]

*Speaking of prospects, it’s been a good week for the kids, particularly Cam York who got his first goal. [BSH]

*The Devils have a big-time problem in net, which is weird considering they had The Best Offseason. [TSN]
