from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun, It's possible that the media have jumped the gun in their assumption that he'll be fired after the season.
There is definitely a power struggle under way between Quinn and general manager John Ferguson Jr., but the winner has yet to be determined.
The eventual outcome is not a matter that Quinn wishes to ponder publicly.
"Whatever happens down the way is going to happen," he said. "I'm not going to lose my sense of priority dreaming or thinking about some other things."
, from the Toronto Star,
Quinn has a year remaining on his contract, but the speculation is that he won't be behind the Toronto bench next year.
However, it is believed that Quinn still has considerable support within the board of governors at Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment, so the chances of him being firing can't be considered a slam-dunk.
And there is speculation that the 63-year-old coach could end up with a job in the front office of MLSE.
