Quenneville Will Be Behind The Blackhawks Bench

from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,

Stan Bowman doesn’t comment on rumors or speculation. What the Blackhawks general manager does do, however, is answer direct questions.

So when asked Monday if Joel Quenneville would return as the team’s coach next season — despite growing whispers that new Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin would somehow orchestrate things so his close friend would leave the Hawks and join him as Montreal’s coach — Bowman said he was committed to Quenneville.

“Yeah, I think we made that clear at the end of the year, that we’re trying to look forward and get better as a group,” Bowman told the Tribune. “But I don’t talk about rumors. I haven’t and I don’t want to start now.”

Just to clarify, the question was broached again if Bowman anticipated Quenneville, whose contract runs through 2013-14, coaching the Hawks next season. The GM chuckled and said: “Yes.”
