Whaler alumni

Recommended Posts

Dave Tippett got the Edmonton head coaching job yesterday.  I am thinking back to the days when he patrolled the Hartford Civic Center as the 4th line center for the Whalers.  Considering the wealth of coaches and analysts that have graduated from that team, I think it must have had one of the highest hockey IQ's ever.  Joel Quennville was on that squad, Ronnie Francis, Kevin Dineen, Ray Ferraro, Ulfie Samuelson, just to name a few.

While Quennville and Tippett have made the most of their coaching gigs, I always thought Dineen, whose dad Bill was a long time coach, would be the most successful coach after his playing days were over.  He certainly was an exciting player on the ice.
