Bend over, here comes ol' One-Eye!

So it finally happened--the Leafs fired Pat Quinn. It's not really a surprise, to me. I mean, the guy pretty much had to go. The question is "who's going with him?"

My pick is that Ferguson will get the axe eventually. I mean, it's pretty much in the cards--Craig Patrick got the boot in Pittsburgh, so I have a hunch that the Leafs will hire him. As for coaching? Well, Rick Ley (best known as the coach who bashed Ron Francis on his way out of Hartford) got fired as well--so I strongly suspect that Chairman Mo will find himself placed in power by MLSE's Central Committee.

Let the games begin.
