    Quinn Post-Game/Practice Comments

    Maybe a good idea to post Quinn video here. I really like what this guy says, think his approach and read of the team is good and is doing the right things with young players.

    The MSG "Connections" show with his and Leetch is a really good conversation.(One with Shatty and Dave Maloney too). They have known each other for 30 years since they were both part of the USA hockey framework and New England hotshots. Both get drafted early as American players started to make it into the NHL, Leetch becomes a HoFer, Quinn gets diagnosed with hemophilia, has a middling minor league career and takes the long way to the NHL in coaching. After hearing that could envision a scenario where Leetch might find his way to this staff when his kids get a bit older.

    An underrated part of Quinn is the scratches. Not just for motivation of underperformers, but REST. Long season. And look at all the players we wore down over the years from too many hard minutes. I am Huge advocate of playing guys closer to 70 games a season.

    He spent the whole presser after Calgary talking about how we had plenty of chances and couldn't finish.

    It's the same thing AV always said about "plenty of good looks."

    Doesn't make it less true. Rittich made 44 saves, several of them grade A chances. The finishing was shit. Unsurprisingly, because this team is completely devoid of goalscorers and I think we'll see many games like this over the season. The team "plays well enough to win" but doesn't because the players that are put in goal scoring situations aren't good enough.

    But you're leaving out the key differentiator... Quinn emphasizes more shots, not waiting for the perfect shot.

    You figure, with this many potential 20-goal scorers that someone could net one once in awhile.

    Throw it in front, get dirty around the net.

    Guys are still passively playing on the outside, settling for long shots without screens or guys crashing too often. It's slowly changing.

    That's the plan. Play well, develop, still lose, get Hughes.

    Yea I don't really disagree with that. It's just funny that he's saying the same thing AV did.

    I'll open at 15-1 for Hughes-to-Rangers bets.

    It's not going to happen.

    Yeah, I'm on that train too, but even getting either is a longshot. They'll likely have to move up.

    Hughes to the Rangers is a pipe dream. Rangers arent fortunate enough ever to get the #1 overall pick.
    Its going to be Detroit or Arizona that gets Hughes.

    Idk, this team could finish bottom-5 and pick 2nd.

    A change in SH% and they could flirt with the playoffs though, too.

    OK firstly, no one knows what's going to happen in June, today lol.

    Secondly, stop taking things so literally. Obviously the point is to show growth but still be in position to grab a very high pick, which seems likely at this time.

    Many? Zib, Kreider & Hayes/Zucc at a push. None of whom are anywhere close to cracking 30.
    That’s abysmal.

    I think I'd expect more guys to score (or close in on) 20 that wouldnt.
    Kreider, Zibs, Zucc, Hayes, Chytil, Buch, Vesey, Spooner

    Bubble - Namestnikov, Fast
    Wild card - Howden, Letteiri

    No - McLeod
