I understand your sentiment. I don't think anyone is thrilled with Quenville. Although a lot of Avs fans were clamoring for him after watching Granato make consecutive early exits from the playoffs.
Quenville is married to Tay-O-Door now...we'll see how long it lasts.
I feel confident that there is no way in hell a Granato coached Avs squad makes the playoffs this year (current roster of course). He got worked by Jacques Lemaire WITH Forsberg, Sakic, Tanguay, Hejduk, Foote, Blake, and of course Patty Roy, against a vastly inferior squad. Admittedly the style of play the Wild (as well as the sharks the following year) were allowed to play had a lot to do with it. But he didn't make the necessary adjustments. He got schooled.
In a perfect world...the boys would never have tuned out Hartley, and he'd still be in Denver.
