You bring in Ruff/Tippet/Babcock/Tortorella in this organization, with management that will fire a coach at the drop of a hat to save their own *****, and they'll be gone in a year - and the players know it.
Gotta feel bad for Quinn. I don't think any coach would have succeeded in that situation. I would have liked to see what he could have done with Hall and Eberle. Under Quinn I don't think we would have had 2 more last place finishes, and I'm guessing Belanger and Smyth would have been torn a new one in the papers and benched most of the year.
