That's a lot of speculation on your part. I think you're driving yourself a little paranoid with all this Mini-Martin stuff. Pearn is one of the most well-respected assistants in the league and has paid his dues for 13 years, he's not some new kid on the block. And yet weren't you one of the people that wanted Cunneyworth here? Cunneyworth meanwhile, has absolutely no coaching experience in the NHL whatsoever, he would be much more likely to be a Mini-Martin than Pearn.

Anyway, the reason I came to this thread was to post this article, about Pearn and Quinn expressing interest in the Panthers' HC vacancy.
