The team has much, much, much bigger problems then head coach. Pointless to waste a good coach on a below average team
I did watch them win the Calder cup, they were a phenomenally coached group of journeymen players. The likes of Darren Haydar, Boris Valabik, Brian Fahey, Brett Sterling and Jason Krug. Ondrej Pavelec backstopping them.
In fact, I wanted Anderson to coach the Avs BEFORE we selected Granato, posting on the official Avs Board about him.
He's just an example of a superior coach being cut loose for less. If I were Sherman my first two interviews would be him and Jon Cooper. Granted, I cant remember the last active coach in the NHL or AHL to leave their team midseason, so I'd promote Quinn temporarily.
