Joel Quenneville Under Pressure In Chicago

from Madeline Kenney of the Chicago Sun-Times,

In short, it’s playoffs or bust this season.

It’s a lofty goal for Quenneville, who enters training camp on Friday with a young group of players surrounded by an aging core and lingering uncertainty about Crawford.

“We’re in the winning business,” Quenneville, the longest tenured coach in the NHL, said at the Hawks fan convention in July. “That’s the most exciting thing. Having a team that plays the right way and playing together as a group, playing hard, playing for one another, I think you get excited about that as well.”

There’s no doubt that Quenneville, who helped the Hawks win three Stanley Cups in six seasons, is one of the most successful coaches in the history of both the Hawks franchise and NHL. He has a Hall of Fame resume.

But after last season, something must give. And it’s fair that Quenneville, who has two seasons left on his contract, could be feeling some pressure.
