The San Jose Sharks are now without both a general manager and a head coach, but the GM finalists have emerged. Likely among them is former Sharks forward Mike Grier. Per Pierre LeBrun, there is a chance that David Quinn could fill the coaching vacancy in San Jose if Grier lands the GM spot. The possible future Sharks head coach was recently rumored to be one of the top candidates for the head coach position with the Boston Bruins and shares a Boston University connection with Grier.

Quinn has most recently been the head coach for the New York Rangers, spending three seasons leading the team from 2018-21. In his 208 regular season games, the Rangers put up a 96-87-25 record.

From 2013-2018, Quinn was the bench boss for Boston University, guiding the team to a much stronger 100-59-20 record in his five seasons.

Grier played at BU from 1993-96, while Quinn played there from 1984-88.

It sounds to me that the Grier/Quinn combo could work out well. I like that Quinn has been involved with the US development team.

KE

So they get rid of Boughner Maclean and Madden 2 of which have won Stanley cup as players and maybe get Quinn? Not sure if that’s a fair trade

Sheng Peng

That’s not a way to measure a good coaching staff…but who knows who Quinn’s assistants, if he gets the job, are. Maybe he’ll hire Pat Maroon and Bryan Trottier haha

david barnard

didn’t he star in The Last of the Mohicans?
