SAY GOODBYE TO SAVVY
Denis Savard will no longer have to commit to the Indian. He was fired today by the Blackhawks. Joel Quenneville is now the new coach.
From the Blackhawks site:
Quenneville, 50, has registered a .592 regular-season winning percentage in parts of 11 years as a head coach in the National Hockey League, including seven seasons behind the St. Louis Blues’ bench (1996-2004) and three with the Colorado Avalanche (2005-08). A veteran of 839 regular-season games as a head coach, he is 155 games over .500 (438-283-118). He most recently served as the bench boss for the Avalanche last season, posting a 44-31-7 record before being signed by the Blackhawks as a pro scout in September.
