Joel Quenneville linked to the Toronto Maple Leafs

The search for a new head coach continues for the Toronto Maple Leafs after firing Sheldon Keefe, and a controversial option has emerged with Joel Quenneville's name being considered.

Among the various names discussed for the Maple Leafs' coaching position, former Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville has sparked the most debate. Quenneville, known for leading the Blackhawks dynasty, was also embroiled in a misconduct cover-up scandal within the Blackhawks organization. In a recent interview, he addressed his role in the situation.

If the Maple Leafs fail to secure Craig Berube as their coach, Quenneville appears to be a popular second choice for many, including Toronto Sun's Steve Simmons and former Maple Leaf Jay Rosehill.

There's a long list of head coaches available for Brad Treliving and the Maple Leafs, but there is only one choice for Jay Rosehill.

How do you feel about Joel Quenneville coaching in Toronto?

There's a significant debate surrounding Quenneville's potential candidacy for the Maple Leafs coaching role. While some media outlets endorse him, others emphasize the importance of thoroughly investigating his involvement in the Blackhawks scandal and any steps he's taken for improvement since then.

As Quenneville's name gains traction among Toronto media outlets, it's possible he becomes a serious candidate in the coaching selection process. However, whether the Maple Leafs ultimately consider hiring him remains to be seen.
