QUOTEBOOK

"I think he's going to be a terrific coach in the NHL. I couldn't be more thrilled for him for the opportunity he's been given. He's a real good hockey mind. He's another one of those guys that is a student of the game. I think he understands today's athletes, having dealt with the college-aged kids for the number of years that he's been there (at Boston University). But, he also has pro experience … he was with the Colorado Avalanche's organization for a number of years, both as a head coach in Lake Erie and an Assistant Coach in Colorado, so he does have some pro experience to draw on. I think Quinny's greatest strength is his communication skills and his ability to build relationships. When you look at the situation that the Rangers are in right now … I couldn't think of a better guy that's up to that task." - Pittsburgh Penguins Head Coach Mike Sullivan (in the summer of 2018) on Rangers Head Coach David Quinn (Credit: NHL Network)

So, DQ said it wasn’t the plan to put Chytil back in after just one game out, but after the way the team played Monday, the plan had to change. He was unhappy with lots of people, Vesey being one of them.
