Could Quinn be on his way out?

Yes, another rumor surrounding Pat Quinn is going around T.O.!

Apparently, a source ( a ‘friend’ of Pat Quinn ) has revealed that Quinn IS DONE after the Olympic Break.

In my opinion, this move wouldn’t make any sense.

1) why would you try to get rid of him now with only 1 month and a half left of regular season? It would make more sense to let his contract expire and carefully select a new coach in the off season.

2)What coaches are available?

3)Would a new coach be able to pick up this team and catch the 8th spot in the conference?

Arguement could be:

1)A new coach would have a full healthy roster after the Olympic Break.

2)Maybe Ferguson has a coach ready to replace Quinn.

In conclusion, I highly doubt this will happen but then again, who knows.

What do you guys think?

  2. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    not happening. especially if quinn coaches team canada to a gold metal

  3. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    This guy is too much of a players coach, he benches the second highest goal scorer (Jeff O’neill) because of his lack of producing, yet Domi, Berg, Khavanov, and plenty of other losers still have jobs… and how does Chow lose his spot to Belak?

  4. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    Where’s your source???

  5. PaulK123 says:

    Quinn isn’y the only problem but firing him is a

    step towards the right away. Here are some trades that can really help us. People keep saying that Mats Sundin isn’t good anymore, he has no wingers to play with! The Leafs also need a defenseman and

    they may just get in the playoffs, here is what they can do:

    To Minnesota:

    Jason Allison

    Kyle Wellwood

    2nd round pick

    To Toronto:

    Marian Gaborik


    To Wahington:

    Alexander Khavanov

    Aki Berg

    5th round pick (Dallas)

    3rd round pick 2007

    To Toronto:

    Brandon Witt

    7th round pick


    To Chicago:

    Clark Wilm

    Nik Antropov

    To Toronto:

    Tyler Arnason

    Now take a look at the roster:













    Paul Maurice

  6. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    I’d try to avoid trading Welly and Wilm… Wilm is great on the PK.

  7. goose says:

    bring in paul maurice or fire furgason and keep quinn.

  8. leafs8917 says:

    so there gonna trade for witt and not play him….why would u trade wellwood, for a guy they can sign i the summer, gaborik is a FA

  9. Aetherial says:

    Is Gaborik an RFA or a UFA … it matters.

  10. 93213 says:

    quinn will finish the season

    maurice will come next season or the one after. He is way to valuable to the Marlies, and hence the Leafs.

    JFJ has a plan and it should be allowed to be carried out.

  11. MaltE says:

    Those trades Will never Ever happen for one thing, because who is going to trade A newly aquired veteran Jason Allison if he is on an agreement for points=more money and a rookie which has high hopes for a Gaborik, on His Prime ??? He is certainly doing well in the Wild, so why would the Wild EVER decide to trade him?. It isn’t like the NHL 2006 video game where you click accept and there’s a chance it could happen. Marian is still young, and can shoot it in the net…

    Also, wouldn’t you think it would be easier to coach a team of amazing players that are selected from the whole NHL based on their performance and previous experiance? In my opinion it would be, and it doesn’t take a lot to coach the team, you just need previous experiance, and that’s why [K]en Hitch*****, [P]at Quinn, and [J]acques Martin are doing it, because they have their own experiance of a mix of quick-style playing[J], strategy[K], and defensive[P], and if you do not know what 3 coaches these fall into you really should hit yourself on the head :{

    P.S-They won’t trade Berg because there was on article on how glad they were on re-signing him, I’ll give you the link if you PM me.

  12. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    why do you think minnesota would give up gaborik? trust me, minnestota has no interest in wellwood or allison

  13. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    why does everyone love paul maurice? because lately he’s done well with players like harrison, but u have to consider that quinn brought this team to the playoffs 6 years ago, and every season since, He is and always will be one of the greatest coaches in the league. you cant judge him after one rough season. Pat Quinn will leave when he feels he can no longer coach the team successfully

  14. goose says:

    pat quinn is an ausumn coach puti dunt think itz really the reason why our home town is in a slump.

    To me i think we should fire ferguson.

    But in the future we could bring up paul maurice from the marlies to be our head coach.

    i think the leafs should do sum heavy duty trading and get them back on track and here are some of my sujjestions.

    1. to minnesota: Belak


    draft pick

    to toronto: Gaborik

    2. to pittsburgh: Klee


    to toronto: malone


    3. to chicago: Antropov amd a low draft pick

    to toronto: Arnason

    4. to phoenix: Allison

    draft pick

    to toronto: Cujo

    draft pick

    5. re-sign: mccabe

    kaberle-already 5 year deal


    6. possible lines:






    extra: wilm, and battaglia





    goalies: belfour


    cujo (if belfour retires or gets traded)


    voila… bi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I could have led the past 6 Leaf teams to the playoff’s, they were stacked teams. The truth is he’s a painfully mediorce coach.

    The Leafs should have gotten Brian Burke when they had a chance, so at least signed a guy that’s actually won something in his life.

  16. Marky2Fresh says:

    Those are some ausumn trade ideas. I think you must be either 12, or a troll lol
