He has done that.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but That hasn't happened here. Different situations, different contexts. Its not as simple as you make it out to be. Considering he was with a team that had almost nothing coming up to begin with, he's done well. He's made this team competitive and at the same time, replenished a poor system.
Got any proof for that? Was he running the tables or making the decisions?
It was in all the reports and press releases when he was hired. Dryden was on record as saying that Quinn's experience as GM was going to be very useful to Toronto.
Was MLSE lying again?
