Granato still not fired?

It's been almost an entire business week since the firing of Avs GM Francios Giguere.  Yet...one of the team's main problems in many eyes--the coach...is still standing.

Are we actually going to give this guy another chance to invoke mediocrity out of this team?  I realize that injuries, and to a lesser extent, weak management left him with a slight uphill battle, but this is a team that Joel Quenneville was able to get into the second round of the playoffs last year.  Granted, that team had a couple extra players over this one, but had a share of injuries arguably greater than this year. 

Regardless, the special teams of last year's Avalanche team and this year were horrible--near the bottom of the league in every category.  Who was the common link between those two teams?  Tony Granato.  I don't know much about coaching in the NHL...but I do know that you need respectable special teams to win.

It would seem that the more time passes, perhaps the more likely it becomes that Granato is going to get a third chance...perhaps that will be the charm?  Or perhaps the Avalanche are waiting to hire a new GM and let him decide what to do with the coach?
