To Quinn or not to Quinn
I’ve got one friend who is doing the happy dance because Quinn has been terminated by the leafs and another who thinks it is a bad idea. I think I side with Scotty. Quinn had all the advantages of a big budget for a lot of years. That explains the success. Even when they were winning they would often sleep for 2 periods and do something miraculous in the third. Quinn never developed the youth in the system and had a bad habit of backing some real lame ducks (Reichel, Renberg, Berg, Antropov). He also had this really annoying habit of juggling the lines. I have no idea how chemistry could ever develop. The only time the Leafs had consistency and chemistry is when they were riddled with injuries and 1/3 of the team had flown in from the farm. I think a good coach will bring out disciplined consistent play. The Leafs just haven’t had that.
