Timing makes absolutely no sense.  I wasn't the biggest fan of Savvy as a head coach, but Dale Tallon should have been the one shitcanned


Joel Quenneville takes over

They hinted at this already weeks ago but 4 games in?? This goes deeper than we all know I think.

Yeah, they obviously were considering the firing before the season. I bet they just gave him a few games to give him a chance.

I like Savard but alot had to do with Havlat's PP time and the fact him and Savard never saw eye to eye and a preseason game where Huet was left in with the B squad to get shelled for 7 goals. The fact that Savard never used Bowman for advice also rubber upper management the wrong way.

How is Joel? Does he have a track record with young players?
