Pat Quinn has just had a swishy salon haircut and pedicure – first-time ever for the latter.
Just sprucing up for his NHL coaching comeback.
“Show opens Saturday night,” he chuckles down the blower from Edmonton.
Back behind a big-league bench, where the 66-year-old belongs, after two seasons of quasi-idling. With the Oilers, a club that’s missed the playoffs the past three years, Quinn – despite the acquisition of netminder Nikolai Khabibulin and Mike Comrie – is the singularly bold-face cast addition.
“I won’t be coaching like I’m some kind of star,” he demurs. “If I start to believe that I’m coming in here on some kind of white horse – or worse, if the players think that – it will just make the job tougher.”
