Time: 9:30 PM CDT
The Winnipeg Jets are playing the Los Angeles Kinds. No rosters or anything tonight as I have not seen any updates.
The Winnipeg Jets asked to have Kevin Cheveldayoff’s meeting with Commissioner Gary Bettman moved up and it was to tomorrow. As things stand right now it appears that the Florida Panthers or Bettman forced Joel Quenneville to resign which works out better for the Panthers monetarily.
For NHL coaches: fired means you still get paid. Resigned means you don't. You're terminating your own contract.— ryan (@ryanclassic) October 29, 2021
Qunneville had 3 more years at 5.25M each. He's losing almost 20M by resigning and not being fired.
That's why he was forced to resign.
I am once again going to ask that we keep all talk about the actual scandal and the repercussions to the article on Kevin Cheveldayoff as I would like people to have a safe space to talk about the game if they so choose. I appreciate how mature everyone has been on here the past couple days when talking about topics that are not easy to talk about. I ask that this continues in the coming days and weeks as more and more comes out. If you would like to know more about how abuse happens in sport I recommend listening to Heavy Medals (ESPN 30 for 30 Podcast) and reading Little Girls in Pretty Boxes. If you would like something more hockey related, please read A Stain on Our Game in the Winnipeg Free Press about Graham James and his rise to fame and later infamy.
