Yes…Alain Vigneault said it and the ramifications to the fancy stat community good be felt throughout the internets. Tanner Glass was even trending on Twitter at one point in NY.

[su_quote cite=”Blueshirts United” url=””]”Yesterday Emerson didn’t practice, he wasn’t feeling well, and he didn’t turn the corner so we needed another forward and we thought that today’s game Glass would be a good fit,” Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault explained following the team’s optional morning skate in Brooklyn. “He’s been playing well in Hartford, so we decided to call him up.”[/su_quote]

Oh yeah, he said that and even said this:

[su_quote cite=”Blueshirts United” url=””]”The Islanders have a physical team and play a hard game, and Glass helps us in that area,” offered Vigneault. “In looking at our different options, and we had different options, with the way Glass was playing this was the right thing to do.”[/su_quote]

The right thing to do? Well those who love or dabble in the world of fancy stats…your thoughts?
