It's silly to dock Quenneville because he led a stacked Chicago team to a Cup. Most Cup-winning coaches have a stacked roster when they win it all. He's a great coach, and he got the most out of a lackluster and aging Avalanche roster during his time here. I don't regret them parting ways since it was clear the Avs were about to head off a cliff and Quenneville had no interest in getting fired because of a terrible GM.

One thing where the numbers fail Sacco completely. Doesn't matter how sucky the rosters have been during his tenure, his division record in a relatively soft Northwest has been abysmal.
