The Rangers have fired David Quinn and all assistants that aren’t Benoit Allaire, per Larry Brooks.

This was something that we knew was coming, as Quinn was on the hot seat the second the season ended. His seat got even hotter when both John Davidson and Jeff Gorton were let go. It is also believed that both David Oliver and Jacques Martin were let go.

Of this, the only surprise is Martin, as he was just hired this offseason. He had a remarkable impact on the defensive play, as the Rangers blue liners pulled a 180 from last year’s performance.

The Rangers will now begin their coaching search to move the team from rebuilder to contender.
