Sick man of Europe Rangers top coaching prospect?

Poor Joel Quenneville getting wasted in Prague. Sports Illustrated said:

PRAGUE, Czech Republic (AP) -- Former St. Louis Blues coach Joel Quenneville has received medical clearance to fly and will likely return to St. Louis Tuesday to recuperate after falling ill at the men's world hockey championship.

Quenneville was released from the hospital Saturday. He has turned over Team Canada to Mike Babcock of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, who had been assistant head coach.
Multiple sources say the New York Rangers, Ottawa Senators and Phoenix Coyotes are chasing Quenneville for coaching vacancies.

The bottomline is that Quenneville is a retread who never made it to his conference finals. The Rangers should look elsewhere.
