Respect for Pat Quinn

26 posts in this topic

I wouldn't mind him to be a part of the organization in some capacity, but not as a coach if that's what you're suggesting...and I always wonder about why Linden is not around the franchise as much...I'd also love to see him be a part of the organization again, perhaps go through an apprenticeship like Yzerman did in Detroit

Id like P.Quinn to come back as a pro scout. He was great at identifying pro-level talent and making moves to acquire them. Kirk McLean anyone? But he also ha a few dud trades. But anyways, him in head office, do it.

Before AV's contract extension, I was preaching for him to get the job.

Pat Quinn and Mike Gillis could be like the guys in Moneyball, hopefully with a better outcome, but ya know winning 20 straight games would be pretty cool too.

He turned this franchise around from loser to winner.

Without Pat Quinn we may have gone the way of the Jets and Nordiques.(south)

It would be a healthy move, after an unhealthy start to a season.

Pretty big IF. Though I wouldn't be against it.

I have many fond memories of the Pat Quinn era in Vancouver, he did alot of great things for this club. I also think he got the proverbial shaft with his recent stint with the Oilers franchise...hard to believe they went with Renney over Quinn for the last two seasons (unless of course the goal actually was to finish at the bottom).

Anyways yes, I would like to see Pat involved in the Canucks organization in some way or other.

I remember the Quinn era fondly as well, however, I still have a hard time getting past his complete failure in contract negotiations with Wayne Gretzky.

Also to the OP: How would the return of Quinn "no doubt" mean that Trevor Linden would make himself more available to the Canucks?

I think Bure's grateful acknowledgement of Pat Quinn during the HHOF phone call puts to rest all Wetcoaster/Tony Gallagher rumours about him.

Would have nothing against him being a part of our organization.

He did a lot for the team, and has a lot of hockey knowledge. It would very likely be beneficial to the team.

I would love to have had him come in and coach this team. Give Quinn a team with 1 or 2 world class goalies, a pair of Art Ross winners, a Selke winner, plenty of decent forwards, and a deep D core and amazing things could happen...

I could see him coach here as well. If AV does not work out then he would be my second choice.

As a fan of the Canucks since the late 70s, I can honestly say that PQ was the GM that started Vancouver's success. He was instrumental in finally bringing in talent that made the rest of the league take notice and raised the bar for subsequent GMs. I also feel he was great at getting the most out of his players. Unfortunately, in the end, I think his decision to take on both GM and Head coaching duties was more than he could handle and really took it's toll from a team stand point. I would have to think that MG would be hesitant on a move like that (if it became necessary) due to PQs potential desire to have more to do with higher levels of management with the team (it was his duty at one time). I could see clashes between them.

I do think, however, there are many similarities between this team and the teams of the 90s. I think he would do a fine job as the coach.

Pat Quinn is a big fan of both Bure and Hodgson. How did we let them get away..
