DENVER (AP) -- The Colorado Avalanche say Joel Quenneville is out
as coach after three seasons. Quenneville was 131-92-23 in Denver, but just 2-2 in playoff series after inheriting a team that was on the slide after a decade of dominance in the NHL.
The Avs were swept out of the playoffs by the Detroit Red Wings
last week, and general manager Francois Giguere faces a huge task
this offseason, facing decisions on 13 players who will become
unrestricted free agents if they're not re-signed.
