What a professional

Colour me stupid, but is this not a total breach of protocol?

Quinn revealed he actually turned down a chance to get back in with the Boston Bruins.

"As a matter of fact, I assume they were serious, they made me an offer," Quinn said. "But it wasn't anything that at that time was acceptable. So they moved on (the Bruins hired Dave Lewis)."
How do you think this makes Dave Lewis feel? To know he wasn't the club's first choice? What does Quinn accomplish by revealing this, other than to prove he's still considered a valuable commodity to all those in the media who say he's done as a coach (a media, I might add, he says means nothing to him)?

I'm puzzled why Quinn would do such a thing to a fellow member of the coaching fraternity.

Seems like a pretty dicky thing for him to do.

Not just dicky, it kind of makes him look really stupid to be laughing off the offer when he's the one currently without a job, and no prospects in site.

The above "anonymous" could be a Leaf fan and can't be from Ottawa. His language shows his identity. Sens fans just ignore him as we ignore leaves fans

Could it just be that Quinn's talking about the situation not being acceptable-possibly referring to the Chiarelli-as-lame-duck G.M. situation?You'd have to think Quinn would want a pretty clear idea as to who has a say about what. Or he could just be a dick.

He has every right to not take the job, for whatever reasons he sees fit. I don't blame him for that, at all.

But why publicize it, besides the obvious attempt to make yourself look good on some "hey, I coulda coached there ya know? shit?

Classless comment. Needless to say the Bruins dodged a bullet by not bringing him on.

Ever since he got that black eye he just hasn't been the same.

You just may be reading entirely too much into it.

"Dicky" is a good word. It struck me as small-minded and petty; a way to emphasize his own importance.

And pray tell, what on earth is a "chocker"? :)

Quinn's pride is obviously hurt right now, so as others have said this was just his way of telling the world that he is still a valuable commodity. I find his story hard to believe, however -- if he was offered the Boston job, he would have taken it, guaranteed. Quinn's only hope of getting back in the NHL now is as a mid-season replacement somewhere. I find it hard to believe that any team would do a full search and decide to recycle this guy as their head coach.
