08:27 AM ET 07.20 | The spotlight will likely shine harshest on Patrick Kane this weekend at the Blackhawks annual convention, but his questionable offseason choices aren't the only storyline. With [new assistant coach Jamie Kompon] joining Mike Kitchen as an assistant coach this week, Joel Quenneville finally has a staff he picked himself. In other words, Quenneville -- with team brass undoubtedly judging each of his moves -- will rise or fall with his own people next to him. The pressure is on the staff to maximize a roster that, despite some holes, still is among the league's best. Turning the special teams around is a must, considering Mike Haviland was made the scapegoat for the poor power play, among other things.

Its definitely "cash and carry" when you're a coach. Thierren took the Pens to the finals but didn't finish the next season before they brought in Bylsma.

Seems a bit unfair when he works for a GM who refuses to take any risks to fill the glaring holes for a d-man. 2nd line center and goalie
