Rangers coach Alain Vigneault thinks that Mike Babcock’s contract (eight years, $50 million) bodes well for all coaches in the league.
Vigneault, who made $2.2 million this season, has been nominated for the Jack Adams Award this year. "This is good news, because it has been several years that the average wage had to increase," he said. Todd McLellan’s deal with the Oilers ($3 million per, for five years) is the second richest in the league, slightly more than Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville, who makes $2.85 million.
