At least he can't fuck this up

Last year I commented on how I didn’t like the hiring of Quinn and would have preferred to see Renney hired, so I guess a year later it worked out for me. I just can’t stand to see a guy roll the lines at this level. They just get eaten alive.

Unfortunately, the meat is a bit tainted as he once served as assistant coach for the Calgary Flames. So maybe he has some insight on why Quasimodo is such a douche.
