The other shoe to coach the Avs

Any time Joel Quenneville was discussed in the Avosphere, there was always a caveat. The speculation has always been that if Q were to leave, Tony Granato would be one of the candidates to return to the bench. That other shoe dropped today; Granato is the new / old coach of the Avs.

I'm decidedly "meh" about this move. I like Granato think it's commendable that he stayed on as an assistant after being dropped as a head coach. I think there's better candidates out there...and some worse ones as well. Granato screams out as the "safe" choice. That's not a terrible thing, but I think Francois Giguere missed a chance to really shake things up behind the bench.
