Coach Joel Quenneville sounds like he’s going to try his best to bring the Hawks back to an elite level.
“Two years ago [in 2011] we exited [the season] with a lot of disappointment. I thought we exited this year with anger,” Quenneville said Friday. “As a staff and players we should all have that in the back of our mind when we begin [next season].”
That statement sums up what could be a different Quenneville come training camp and beyond. If anger is his emotion of the day, then practices and accountability for in-game failures might be different.
