I don't know. Maybe they're right, these reports just always seem fishy to me.
Mentioning him last in the article and calling him an "out of left field" candidate isn't really a ringing endorsement. Quinn just seems like another guy who likes the "grind it out" and "dump and chase" style of hockey. Another Sacco.

He might not be a bad coach and I think people other than Dreger do like him, I just want a guy with more experience. Someone who is a bit more creative on offense would be nice too.
