How about Pat Quinn for the remainder of the season

I always thought Pat was a great coach and I agreed that his time had come, but hasn't Ron Wilson's time come? Let's not be in a rush to put a new coach in place until the offseason, but let Quinn finish off the year. Any thoughts?

Pat is nostalgic to Toronto, but im not sure if he has any relationship with Burke, at all.

If Wilson gets canned before the end of the year, I think its highly likely Scott Gordon takes over as interim, then Eakins is given the reigns on the summer when he done with the Marlies.

Quinn did say he would like to return to coach in the NHL. But, I'd like Quinn to be full time if he is coming back. if anything, Eakins should be the new coach (after season ends that is).

No. Quinn is too proud a man to come in with an interim label above his head and Burke has too much respect for Quinn to even do this.

burke already stated many times that if a coaching change were to happen, it would be in the offseason.

Likely never gonna happen, but maybe Quinn would want to end his coaching career here. He has been an interim coach before with the Nucks in '96, but he was the GM at the time too.

Not sure about the move but Quinn was the one who hired Burke to his first NHL job in Vancouver.

I think John Brophy is dead. Mike can only write.

If Quinn can turn the team around fast, sure thing.

why the hell would we finish the season with a different coach and possibly win more games?

We wont make the playoffs so lets at least let tank commander wilson get us a top 5 pick. logical move (serious).

Quinn hates young players, no way in hell he'd ever agree.

He likes veteran experience.

It would not happen and would be a jerk move if it was done (so not gonna happen under Burke)

Wilson just tied Quinn for games coached at 1400 yesterday or something like that.

I'd love to see it happen, but it ain't gonna...

I would love to see a coach come in that can spell d-e-fence.

Quinn during his last couple years here had a lot of the same problems with his team that face Wilson today.

Im not sure who I would like to see, Boudreau is a nice option.



Michelle Bergeron? He would light a firecracker under nutsacks.

Im fine with that.

But we won't. We will be 12 points back with five teams ahead of us, win 7 in a row and finish in 9th four points out.

Did you hear Sportsnet start throwing out random coaches names and decided to choose one and make a thread about it?

He can't coach in the post lock out NHL and it was shown in Edmonton.
