11/12: On Saturday, Vigneault said "I would say that a combo of how Nick and Marc had been playing which was okay. I just see that Brady's progression lately as far as his puck decisions and his gap the way he can skate away from the forecheck. I felt that with the few games that he got last year it was time to give him a shot on the right side and see what he can do. He's been playing some pretty good hockey for us."
On Friday, Vigneault said "he played there last year in Hartford. That is one of the things toward the end of the year that we had them do. In the last 5-6 games I have liked how he has played, how he is skating with the puck and, we will find out, I am hoping that him and Marc Staal will be a good combo. A veteran stay at home type with a young player who can skate and move the puck."
