3:35PM: Alain Vigneault said on Monday that he really likes Andersson's skill set and how he interacts, and asks questions, of his teamamtes.

He likened it to when the Rangers acquired Marty St. Louis and how Mats Zuccarello would follow him and ask him questions about what he was doing.

Vigneault said "I see the same type of personality as far as asking questions. I hear that in his teams back home he had been a captain and leader. I believe that in Lias' case we have real good personality and a real good person."

On Chytil, Vigneault said "Filip doesn't know the language as well and he is just coming back from injury but what I saw him yesterday skating wise was real good."
