What if Detroit decided to overhaul their roster and fired Dave Lewis and brought in Q? Thoughts?
I honestly think this is a possibility, but don't think it would happen. If Detroit starts a rebuilding, Q is probably not the guy they want. He didn't seem very patient with our young guys, often sitting them for "barely serviceable" vets.
I know it seems strange to start a thread and then poo poo my own question, but I think this is a subject that bears some discussion.
Another twist to throw into the question: would Quenneville necessarily prefer the Detroit job (if it was offered to him) over the Colorado job (if it becomes available and is an option for Q)? Or is there another job that might be even more appealing to him than either one of those? He must be sitting in the catbird's seat right now with a pretty big grin on his face.
I do think Lewis will be fired, But I don't think Detroit will try to land Quenneville, I agree that Barry Smith will get the job.
