The Edmonton Oilers announced today that Pat Quinn will be returning to the NHL next year to coach the struggling team. Joining Quinn will be recently fired Rangers bench boss, Tom Renney.
“I’m certainly aware of the history of the Oilers,” Quinn said. “I’m fully aware of the passion of the fans and the work ethics and the appreciation of talent here. I think we have the opportunity to help this team win and I’m excited to have Tom and Kelly (Buchberger) here. It’s a thrill and a joy to return to the rink and I’m happy to be here again.”
I think it will be interesting to see if Renney and Quinn can work together to create a system that works and is followed by the players both on and off the ice.
What do you think of the Oilers newest additions?
