The Chicago Blackhawks and head coach Joel Quenneville have been in a serious relationship since 2008, however if things go wrong again this season, there might be a breakup.
Coach Q was asked at the recent Blackhawks convention about if he felt his job was secure and he gave a pretty honest answer.
"As a coach, [getting fired] can happen at any moment. That's all part of our business. It's the way it goes," Quenneville said. "We're in the winning business, and as a coach, that's the only way we think, is winning the next game. The other stuff, we can't control. We're fighting to get two points, getting the guys ready to play and playing right. That's our job, and I can't think of the other things."
Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz mentioned during the offseason that if the Hawks started off on the wrong foot there could be major changes around the holidays.
Quenneville is aware that nothing lasts forever and is just trying to focus on getting back into the playoffs.
"As a coach, you're in the winning business. That's what you're here for and that's what you want to do," he said. "I think everybody has the same motivation to win and the final results are being a playoff team and trying to be champions. That's where we're at."
If the Hawks are under .500 by the end of December, do you think Quenneville will be let go?
