This nature of incumbency, with Canadian Junior clubs could make any coach look good. Was Quinn actually any good in figurehead capacity? I didn't see it that way. People believe in legend making and Quinn was a nice story in that regard.

Did anybody really think he was competent here? His performance that year spoke for itself. This was much more of a challenge then Quinn was prepared or able to take on. Not sure how this could even be disputed.

I was very against the Quinn hire. A disastrous selection and said so at the time.

This is the one coach, the only coach, that I wanted gone.
