Hitchcock Is Safe

via the Philadelphia Inquirer,
Ken Hitchcock is going nowhere. Flyers chairman Ed Snider was angry yesterday at suggestions by a New York Post hockey columnist that there was growing friction between Hitchcock and general manager Bob Clarke, and that it might lead to Hitchcock's firing, regardless of what happens in the current playoff series. The newspaper suggested that the Flyers would hire Pat Quinn, who was fired last week in Toronto. Similar rumors were reported by Toronto television stations last week. The columnist is "out of his mind," Snider said yesterday. "He just makes this stuff up. Hitch has done a wonderful job coaching, given what we have gone through this season with all our injuries."
