Note the following quotes from Inside Look with Joel Quenneville presented by Cadillac premiering Wednesday, January 16 on Comcast SportsNet:
QUENNEVILLE on when he decided to become a coach:
I look at all of my former teammates, and theyd say 'the least likely guy to be a coach!' I was probably a character back in the day. There were several guys when we were in Hartford that turned out they're coaching in today's game and are in the NHL todayyou can go down the list of almost every roster and see a former Whaler on a coaching staff and organization at the NHL level. In my last year (as a player), I was sent down from Washington to play most of that year in Baltimore, and realized that I'm going to have to get a real job next year and did some work in the off-season preparing for life after hockey, but in the summer, I went to Roger's (Neilson) coaching clinic in Windsor and began looking around. Cliff Leture game me a job as a playerassistant coach on a new farm team in Toronto, St. John'sNewfoundland. I got a chance to work with Marc Crawford, and been fortunate along the way.
QUENNEVILLE on being a major factor in the Blackhawks renaissance:
Both (Blackhawks President & CEO) John (McDonough) and (Blackhawks Chairman) Rocky (Wirtz) did an amazing job right from the outset. They put a lot of things in placethe staffing, the right peopleand the enthusiasm seems to be contagious throughout not just the organization, but the entire city on what's coming is going to be excitingthe enthusiasm was real. I think the one thing is Rocky and John initially were like 'do your thing' and it was fun to be walking right off that bat, knowing there's a lot of great people around here, but at the end of the day, you trust your instincts and do what you do. But the support was always therethere are a lot of nice things about playing & being a Blackhawk.
QUENNEVILLE on his familys adjustment to life in Chicago:
Weve always been together. A lot of coaches knowing the transition and disruptions in the middle of the years, they sometimes stay apart, but weve always hung together and its always been helpful.
