Joel Quenneville

I assume Joel Quenneville's money is no good in Chicago after leading the Blackhawks to their first Stanley Cup in 49 years last spring.  It was a crowning achievement for one of the most successful and recognizable NHL coaches of the last 15 years.  Quenneville and his magnificent mustache enjoyed several prosperous years in St. Louis and Colorado before getting the Blackhawks gig.  While NHL coaching tenures are always volatile, he should be able to stay in Chicago for as long as he wants.
