Pat Quinn Still Has The Passion

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

Pat Quinn isn’t asking Steve Tambellini for much. Or, for that matter, for anything more than a man of his stature in the game deserves.

“Steve has his whole organization, and I hope he sees where I can fit in and do (something meaningful). I don’t want to carry bags,” Quinn said on Sunday afternoon, addressing his job status for the first time since he said he was blindsided by his firing as head coach on June 22.

As another hockey season dons, and rookies from five NHL teams hit the ice here in B.C.‘s interior, Quinn sat next to Tambellini in the stands of the South Okanagan Events Centre discussing his future with the Oilers. With one year left on a deal he signed to coach the team, both know the post of senior advisor could mean anything, really.

For now, Quinn just wants it to have some substance.

“I don’t want to go off in the sunset yet,” the 67-year-old grandfather said.
