    I assume BU was going for this kid as well... not sure if we were ever in the running but the coaching ambiguity can’t be helping right now...

    From what I heard, that would not be a smart assumption.

    May have had issues with size and defense but a goal scorer which Bu needed being only about 6 deep at forward

    Felt Crone was too slow. He has the skill though.

    Same, Quinn's staff tended not to go after kids with perceived attitude issues.

    Not being able to get into Harvard is an attitude issue?

    No, I've seen numerous rumors that his parents are very...."involved" in his growth and that he's not the most coachable player. Again, rumors, but Quinn's staff did not tend to go after guys who had these kinds of question marks. It's similar reasoning why they didn't even bother to recruit Tolvanen.

    From a very good source, those were two of the reasons BU didn't pursue Wahlstrom after his decommit from Harvard. As for Tolvanen, BU wasn't interested in putting a shiny illusion into its column, knowing there was zero chance he'd complete high school in time to be NCAA eligible.

    Ah yes, the clairvoyant David Quinn. "Putting a shiny illusion into its column"...ya I am sure that's what Jerry York was trying to do. My god, what a toolbag you are.

    As for Wahlstrom, he's a 1-2 year player. I highly doubt any coach would turn away from that talent because of rumors about annoying parents. There are boatloads of those in the sports world. I suppose if you already have the potential for a lot of early departures you might shy away from Wahlstrom but for BC, this is the kind of player they needed to boost what they already have.

    Not celebrating...I have been critical, yes, but that goes with the territory of being a fan. I can have an opinion - it's my right. That being said, I wish him the best. I don't know the man personally so everything said on these boards is done in the context of being a fan (short for "fanatic"). There is no animosity intended.

    I will say this...he is taking on a brutal responsibility in the most critical city in the country with more scrutiny than anywhere else. There won't be a lot of tolerance for failure and the accomplishments will have to be realized quickly.

    I supposed the only "question" I would have is (besides the obvious one of money) what caused the change of heart? I'm not naive; I understand that when you take a new position you have to say things like "This is my dream job," and "I'm really comfortable here and feel like part of the family" and all that stuff. But it just seems as though he didn't really see it through, so I'm wondering if something happened to sour him on the entire experience.

    Good to see Quinn learned from the late Parker years.

    $12.5 million sure helped. Also NYR giving him five years on the contract and the understanding that the rebuild of their roster is a multi-year process. It's a tough job to turn down.

    GQ is a competitive guy. He sees haskol and now Monty go pro and has to be thinking “I am better looking than both of them, no reason not to be on that stage too.”

    Good for him. Hope he wins every game except when he plays the pens.

    "I'm better looking than Monty," is kind of a low bar.

    Regarding "being happy that Quinn is gone" as someone who's also critical of Quinn's coaching abilities it seems he finally found a way to get the most out of his players not named or on a line with Eichel during the 2nd half of last year. That would be 4 1/2 years into his tenure. Whether that was an anomaly or if he's actually improved I don't know, but his departure is survivable provided the team can still land the recruits that have gotten the program back on track after the end of Parker's tenure. I'd hire Albie to see what he can do. If he blows can his a ss in a couple of years and then go out and get a big name if needed.
