Quinn was not a better coach while with the Canucks. Quinn is very loyal to his players which is good that the players know they are allowed to play their game, but Quinn carried that to a fault in that he kept players past when they should have been replaced and he had a hard time inserting young players and rookies into a spot of importance on the roster.

Roger Nielson was the inventive coach that could react quickly to changes.
