    Ok, then take everything I said about Quinn and apply it to JD and Gorton if it makes you feel better.

    But I don’t think that’s entirely true. If management was always fine with what a coach was doing no coach would ever get fired. They get leeway to implement a lot of their own philosophies; management steps in when it goes too far off rails from their own vision. They don’t micromanage ice time decisions on a month to month basis.

    If he doesn’t change, your smugness may envelope the inner solar system. I’m demanding it for the good of humanity.

    Who said management was always fine with a coach?

    I just said that as of today, management of the Rangers is not unhappy with Quinn because he is still here.

    I said myself that I’m not advocating Quinn gets fired so I’m not even sure what your point is.

    Shake up the lines. Fans get annoyed.

    Leave the lines the same. Other fans get annoyed.

    I was commenting on something you wrote not on what you believe.

    You think I'm powerful enough to take over the inner solar system?

    I must be careful with this power.

    Quinn himself has even said he loses track of ice time for some young players and wants to get them more minutes. IMO, managing in game scenarios isn’t one of his strong suits. I hope he gets better at it, development wise, I would love to see Chytil have a bigger role and kakko get some time on the PP. I’m happy we haven’t had a too many men penalty in a while. But if he thinks we have a legit shot at catching Boston I expect him to ride his big guns early and often. Whatever he gets from the kids will be a bonus for him. Minus kakko, he’ll get his time with panarin as long as he keeps his legs moving if the points come or not

    Is there a development coach coacher we can get to help develop Quinn in that case?

    No, I don't agree with you. For SEVERAL reasons I gave that you ignored completely, I DO question the coach's judgement. And the team itself indicated with "the letter" that acquiring and developing prospects would be a priority over making the playoffs (a position that they reaffirmed on several occasions, including the beginning of this season, when they said the progression, not necessarily the post season, was the goal for this year).

    But rather than have an actual conversation about our differing views, you choose to ignore all of the actual information I posted because of the word "jackass"? You've been trolling the thread for at least a couple of pages, talking down to people, ignoring their actual arguments and acting as if yours is the only viewpoint that matters. Bear in mind as you look down your nose at me--YOU responded to one of my posts and opted to do so in an insulting tone. Here's a life tip--if you don't want to be called a pretentious jackass, don't act like one. Better yet, don't hit "reply" on someone's post when they weren't talking to you and you clearly have no interest in engaging with what they were saying. I cede the presumably pretentious last word to you, but I won't be seeing any more of your obnoxiousness.
