Avs Axe Quenneville

Joel Quenneville has been fired as the coach of the Colorado Avalanche. I really don't agree with this move, as injuries were by far the teams downfall. They were underdog first round winners over the Wild, but just didnt have the man-power to beat the Wings. That, and the fact that the team wasn't given a reliable goaltender in Quiennevilles four years. Yesterday I said Hartley, Robinson and Burns were the only coaches the Leafs were allowed to hire. Add Joel to that list, he's a great coach and I think this is an unfair firing.

More on the Leafs: Jim Nill and Ken Holland are off of Toronto's list. The Red Wings will not give the Leafs permission to speak to either of them. Reports also are suggesting that Dave Nonis will be in Toronto early next week to have a formal interview with the club. The saga continues...
