New York Rangers (34-39-9)

Quinn: Rangers' job is an 'opportunity I could not pass up'

NEW YORK (AP) David Quinn had been contacted by other NHL teams in recent years, and chose to remain at Boston University. When the New York Rangers came calling, it was different.

As talks with general manager Jeff Gorton and assistant GM Chris Drury - both of whom he's known for many years - progressed, he knew it was time to make the move.

"It just seemed like a natural fit," Quinn said Thursday when he was introduced as the Rangers' coach at Madison Square Garden. "I'm 52 years old and at this point in my life, to be able to be the head coach of the New York Rangers was an opportunity I could not pass up."
