For management and coaches—let alone players—the annual Chicago Blackhawks fan convention could someday be a contentious place to be. Two first-round playoff exits after their Stanley Cup victory don’t have fans completely boiling over, but another sub-par year might change things next July.
Coach Joel Quenneville sounds like he’s going to try his best to bring the Hawks back to an elite level.
“Two years ago [in 2011] we exited [the season] with a lot of disappointment. I thought we exited this year with anger,” Quenneville said Friday. “As a staff and players we should all have that in the back of our mind when we begin [next season].”
That statement sums up what could be a different Quenneville come training camp and beyond. If anger is his emotion of the day, then practices and accountability for in-game failures might be different.
