The Chicago Blackhawks have been busy this summer keeping the gang together while staying under the salary cap. Luckily for them coaches don't count on the cap so re-signing coach Joel Quenneville was an easier proposition one that was completed on Friday.
The Blackhawks said on Thursday they had a "major announcement" to make and it was just as many expected: an announcement of Quenneville's new three-year contract extension.
That's what happens when a coach leads a franchise to two Stanley Cups in a span of four years the most recent being won a few weeks back. The goal now will be to try and win a few more before his new contract runs out.
"I'm privileged to coach probably the best group in the league" Quenneville said on Friday.
With the new deal added onto the remaining year on his current contract Quenneville is slated to be in Chicago through the 2016-17 season.

At a Blackhawks fan convention on Friday night, Andrew Shaw showed us once again why he’s one of Chicago’s most beloved athletes. A fan captured video of Shaw twerkin’ for the audience, and while we appreciate the effort, we hope he’ll practice his moves for next time….and then take them to the ice.

After that 17 seconds from hell in Game Six, most Bruins fans could not bear (pun intended) to watch any of the Chicago Blackhawks Cup parade.
And over a month later, I still had NO desire to watch any of it until this tweet:

Well, one of the worst kept secrets in a long time is outâBlackhawk head coach Joel Quenneville has had his contract extended through 2017.
Well-deserved for one of the best coaches in hockey. Casual fans so often point to the drafting of Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane as the key factors in the turnaround of the Hawks' on-ice fortunes. But it can...
The one and only one comfort I took in "my team" losing to the eventual Stanley Cup champions involved the fact that "my team's" season ended on April 27th, and the Chicago Blackhawks' season ended on June 24th.

Given a) the Evening Line, b) the fact that we're kind of sitting on the, "Report: Joel Quenneville to receive contract extension Friday" story because it hasn't happened yet and c) there's actually a significant amount of other stuff going on, I really don't want to post yet another Roberto Luongo-gate article...
