*Despite telling us that big decisions would wait until after Worlds, Alain Vigneault has now laid out the structure of his new coaching staff: Therrien on the power play and forwards, Yeo on the penalty kill and defensemen, and our old pal Ian Laperriere? In the press box. Wondrous. []

*And if you’re wondering why AV picked the guys he did, this may provide some insight. [Courier-Post]

*Speaking of Big Al, he’s literally living the dream coaching Team Canada at Worlds. [Sportsnet]

*Oskar Lindblom: he was pretty good! [Flyers]

*Next up in Charlie’s RFA series is Travis Konecny, who is prime for a bridge deal. Maybe. [The Athletic]
