As the week continues on, the Boston Bruins are continuing to find their next head coach. Literally 8 days after being relieved of his duties from the Bruins, Bruce Cassidy found himself a new home with the Las Vegas Golden Knights. One name that has been leaked around is Jay Leach. But another name that has submerged for the Bruins is former Rangers coach David Quinn. Now personally, I didn’t know much about him before I heard his name. But after doing the research, there are some things to break down. Here’s a look at Bruins interviewee David Quinn.
The Bruins have a developing coach in David Quinn
David Quinn isn't my first choice, but I'm not sure I get the vitriol from Bruins fans over him. 2/3 seasons with NYR affected by Covid, good career at BU, helped develop McAvoy and Gryz, Fox won a Norris under him, Zibanehad had hes best season as well.

The big sentence in this tweet revolves around development. David Quinn helped develop Bruins defensemen Charlie McAvoy and Matt Grzelcyk. McAvoy has flourished into one of the NHL’s up and coming elite defensemen. Grzelcyk has had his good seasons with the Bruins as well. Imagine David Quinn being able to develop some of the young talent that the Bruins have in Providence? And also on the NHL roster? It would definitely speed up the retool/rebuild process going on in Boston.
David Quinn’s connection to the area/experience
David Quinn has ties to Boston. He played for the Boston University Terriers in the mid 1980’s. He also later coached at BU. We know the NHL experience with recently coaching for the New York Rangers. He’s also currently the head coach for the US Men’s olympic hockey team. The guy has been around for quite awhile. It’s not like there’s a shortage on experience from David Quinn, which could benefit the Bruins.
David Quinn is a favorite to be the next Bruins head coach. Is he a step down from Bruce Cassidy? Yes. Anyone who gets the job will be! But is he the worst option to have as the next Bruins head coach? Certainly not! If he gets hired, let’s give him a chance before we make any criticisms. It’ll be interesting to see the Bruins next official hire as their head coach.
