How convenient for the LA Kings lol. :hmmm:

re: Quenneville
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

I can see the Oilers firing McLellan and bringing in Quenville

Quenville gone for the same reason AV was sent packing by Vancouver.

Exceeded his best before date and the message went stale.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I agree, you can't.
This rebuild needed experience from the get-go.
I don't agree with the nothing wrong with the one...

Was Travis Green Linden's or Benning's guy? Anyone see a scenario where Benning goes to Aquaman and says he wants to bring in his own guy to coach the team?

Green is doing a good job, but he's no Quenville

Canucks right now are in a similar place as the Hawks were when they made the coaching move. Missed playoffs 3 straight years, starting to turn a corner.

I'm not saying I'm in favor of it, but if Benning wants his guy now that Linden is no longer in the picture, does he consider this?

How do you know what he’s gained? Are you friends with a lot of the officials?

Yeah...no. Elmer has fired a coach and hired another. They aren’t going to allow him to gas Green. IF Green gets the boot in the next two years, Elmer will be going with him.

Who really hired Green? Was it Linden or was it Benning?

Everyone was probably in agreement that Willie needed to go, but everyone also knows that Willie was a Linden hiring.

Quenville, Dineen and Samuelson hit the market a couple of days after LA picks Desjardin.
Hired to be fired?
Willie was hired as an interim coach. No other candidate would accept the temporary title and position. He was hired to be replaced easily. Don’t be surprised....
The only HW the Canucks need

I wouldn't be surprised if the Blues ditched Yeo and made a pitch to Quenneville. Never say never, there...
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.

Quenneville's contract runs thru 2019-20. Is he just paid a flat severance or does he have to avoid being hired by another team in order to continue collecting a paycheque? If the latter, then he has plenty of time to make a decision on which young and upcoming contender he wants to join ;) ;)

I believe linden remained in love with Willie until the bitter end.

I heard from 2 different sources that Linden threatened to step down in 2016 if Clipboard was canned.

(those sources say Jimmy/Aqua wanted him gone in 2016 but Linden bought him another year)

My belief... along with those sources... could be wrong of course.

I guess that doesn't answer your question but from all that I personally get the sense Jimbro is the one who wanted Green.

FWIW
