Four posts in one summer day. Not likely to happen again …
Anyway, in case you missed it, Pat Quinn was named Edmonton coach, and Tom Renney will be one of his assistants.
I wonder if there’s a future for Craig MacTavish or his assistants — – Charlie Huddy and Bill Moores, who were Rangers assistants in the past – in New York.
Here is the AP story:
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — The Edmonton Oilers have hired Pat Quinn as coach.
The 66-year-old Quinn has been out of the NHL since being fired as coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs after the 2005-06 season.
The Oilers also hired former New York Rangers coach Tom Renney and former Oilers player Kelly Buchberger as assistant coaches.
Quinn replaces the fired Craig MacTavish. He also coached Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Vancouver and Toronto.
The Oilers were 11th in the Western Conference last season and failed to make the playoffs for the fifth time in the last seven seasons.
