NHL: Three Possible Destinations for Joel Quenneville
As the hockey season draws to a close it comes with change. That means some head coaches will be removed from their positions. This means that some big-name coaches might get another chance to be a coach. One of those coaches is Joel Quenneville. Quenneville has been the head coach for the Chicago Blackhawks since 2008. He was fired earlier in the season after the Blackhawks got off to an awful start. Here are three teams that might bring Quenneville on as their next head coach.
The Flyers missed the playoffs this year. They, at the current moment, have a -19 goal differential. The Flyers were sellers at the trade deadline. They like most teams are young and trying to rebuild. The Flyers were decent at home and on the road. Nonetheless, Quenneville would help bring the Flyers back. Not right away but back.
The Oilers are a young team that has a lot of pressure on them. They have the best player in all of hockey in Connor McDavid. McDavid can be like Patrick Kane for Quenneville. The Oilers also have other pieces that could be better under the right coach. They will not make the playoffs they are second to last in the Western Conference. Quenneville is very good with young talent.
The Ducks have been a disappointment this year. Father time has caught up to them. They need a coach that can utilize their young talent. Quenneville can help with that. The Ducks are on the bottom of the conference. If not for the horrid play of the Los Angeles Kings they would be dead last. They need some fresh blood and Quenneville could be just that.
It is early to see what is going to happen and which coaches will be fired. However, these three teams could possibly be a destination for Joel Quenneville.
