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).
