Calgary fired Iron Mike Keenan.

After a disappointing end to their season, the Calgary Flames announced the firing of head coach Mike Keenan on Friday afternoon.

"Our team did not meet expectations, Flames General Manager Darryl Sutter said in a statement. ''Following detailed evaluation over the past three weeks, and taking into consideration all factors affecting our season ending result, we believe this is a necessary change required to allow our team to continue toward our objective of winning the Stanley Cup."
Didn't see it posted in here anywhere, so sorry if it already was.

Can't say I'm too surprised that he was fired, but it will be interesting to see who GM Darryl Sutter decides to hire. His brother Brent is still under contract for one more season with the Devils so he is likely out of the equation for now. Would Darryl consider going back behind the bench for a season until he can hire Brent?
