C'MON ALONG, C'MON AND WIN, ALL WITHOUT THE MIGHTY QUINN

          Orca Bay Sports & Entertainment fired Canucks President
     & GM Pat Quinn, according to Jim Jamieson of the Vancouver
     PROVINCE.  Quinn, who held the post since '87, "took the rap
     .. for his hockey club's tailspin season."  Orca Bay CEO
     Stephen Bellringer said the move "was a joint decision, a
     discussion between myself and the ownership of the Orca Bay
     organization and it was a categorically unanimous decision." 
     Quinn had one year remaining on his contract "that is
     believed to pay him" C$1.2M in base salary.  Bellringer said
     Orca Bay would negotiate a settlement (PROVINCE, 11/5).  In
     Toronto, Dave Fuller reports potential candidates to replace
     Quinn included Mike Keenan, agent Mike Gillis, former Maple
     Leafs President Cliff Fletcher and former Sabers GM John 
     Muckler (TORONTO SUN, 11/5).  USA TODAY's Kevin Allen also
     mentions NHL Senior VP Brian Burke (USA TODAY, 11/5).
