Would Steve Tambellini fire Pat Quinn?

I am sure everyone remembers before the Maple Leafs hired JFJ as their General Manager Pat Quinn wanted them to hire Steve Tambellini because they were good friends and because he might have thought that he would not fire him because of that fact, at least that's my opinion. Now I don't see Quinn getting fired this year because it's his 1st year with the Oilers but if this continues into next season do you think Tambellini has the guts to fire Quinn if he felt like he had to?

Quinn won't be fired. No starting goaltender in Khabibulin, no star player in Hemsky.

Quinn won't get fired, he'll just eventually step down and Renney will take over.

so theyd be just as crappy but two players would elevate them a possible place or two while still being excessively dysfunctional.

not saying Quinn is a "bad guy" or needs to be fired but its dead obvious that the coaching didnt matter since Pronger left and was an illusion for fans to whine about - focusing the blame in reactionary places. then they learned the hard way it was the rosters overall lack of talent to execute hockey skills and systems more so than than anything else.

now theyre all on the mob/hordes latest (and final) stage - the TANK/REBUILD

Regardless how "bad" the Oilers have been this year - and they have been bad - it's no wonder that they have 1 win in 18 with this level of goaltending. You can't win in the NHL with subpar goaltending even if you're slightly above average, let alone where the Oilers are.

Do you think Brian Burke has the guts to fire himself, if this continues into next season, even though he is the Master of his own domain?

When Lowe was GM, the team never finished with less than 70 points.

This year the team will finish with less than 40 points. Ugh. Worst Oilers team in franchise history.

Talk about not feeding the Trolls.... but hey, last time I looked, the Leafs last successes came with Quinn... So where does that leave Toronto?

Seriously, the problem in Edmonton was here long before Quinn was ever coach. It begins, and ends with the leadership on the Oilers. The Oilers need to pull a Chicago, but here's hoping that the Oiler management can get their heads out of their ***** like Chicago did and draft quality talent, when they do get the first round pick over the next several years. Maybe by the time my year old boy is five, and wants to watch hockey he won't be subjected to the **** I have had to endure since 1991.

I like Quinn but would like to see some young blood ala Clouston/Bylsma behind the Oilers bench someday. It would be hard to take Quinn very seriously, it would be like listening to your grandpa talk.

You have to understand that in the last 40 some odd years of atrocious hockey in TO the fans and media have always blamed the coach for their misfortunes. It was never the 3rd liners like Darcy Tucker that got pumped up by the national media as if they were all-stars that was holding the Leafs back, it was the morons he was forced to play under. It's an interesting Toronto phenomena when you think about it.

Tambellini will fire Quinn when the Leafs make their 2010 first round draft pick.

Watch for it.

As people have already stated, terible contracts. But c'mon, not having your #1 goalie, and #1 point getter for pretty much the whole season is like chopping off both legs on a human. Imagine where the Flames would be without Kiprusoff and Iginla the whole year, or Canucks without Luongo and Sedin.

Not having a your #1 tender and #1 point getter, plus throw in all the other injuries and illness to the rest of the squad. (Including losing Souray, the Oil's #1 D-man, for a real good chunk of the year)

I'm not saying the Oil would be a contender, but they would be in the mix for that last playoff spot for sure, if it wasn't for losing their best players for the season or good chunks of the season.

Injuries do hurt, no doubt about it. But even if you lose your #1G and #1F, you should have a team that can do better than last place.

If you can't, you've got a really sad group of crap on your roster.

The "Monster" has a .875 save percentage. That is surprising. I honestly thought he was going to be better than that.

No Quinn wont be fired. He has dirt on Tambellini. Why do you think he got hired in the first place?

Tambo gets the axe way before Quinn. Quinn shouldn't even be considered.

No #1 goalie? Well that's Tambo's responsibility for hiring an injury prone guy who is over 35 to a long term deal.

Didn't overhaul roster in off season? Tambo said he would.

The Oilers are in a horrible situation and right now the buck stops at the GM's desk. No player or coach will right the ship now. The GM needs to start a proper rebuild for the future.

If nothing major is done by the deadline, Katz should hand him and Lowe their walking papers the next day.

Quinn will be gone long before Tambo is... I mean really, how many times has he thrown his players under the bus, terrible at line matching (getting somewhat better) but what "decent" coach in their right mind would have Strudwick out in the final minute of a hockey game. not to mention also on a 4 on 3 PK?

Tambi won't get canned. It's Lowe who made the Horcrap extension, along with all of the big money deals for Gilbert, Vishnovsky, Souray, Penner, etc.

Lowe also drafted the 2 goalies that the Oilers are using now.

Tambi can't give a lot of the current roster away at the deadline if he wanted to.

Has to move Staios to a borderline playoff team. They can take on his 2.7 million cap hit next year for a pick. Buy out Moreau, and get some new leadership in the room.

If you can find a taker for Souray, make the move.

Be the worst team in the league and secure either Hall or Seguin.

Oilers need to build a strong foundation because it's apparent that they can't attract the big fish to come. So, land your big fish in the draft and go that way.

As for Quinn, I'm sure they will sit down and talk about what's the best way to go if they can move some contracts and go very young.

Lets get this straight right now and I'm fed up of Lowe being blamed for this contract. Lowe traded for Vishnovsky. He didn't sign him yet the Lowe haters will blame him for everything even if it's not his fault. Lowe will also be blame for Tambi's mistakes. If Lowe was pulling any strings, there would have been trades. Sorry to burst your bubble but Tambi made the current mess of having the worst team in franchise history. Signing Khabbi, an injury-prond goalie was all Tambi.

Principe was on the fan960 a few weeks ago addressing this topic and basically said unless he steps down hes guaranteed to be here next year.

Now if things don't start off a little better next year and we get this bad of results with a healthy lineup then its very possible he could get a boot.
