In an interview that I seen on the Score it said that Keane would not accept a two-way contract at all. He feels that he can still play in the NHL and he would try with another team.
I said "yes" in the pole, here are my reasons:
-I don't think (this is my opinion) that another season in the AHL would hurt someone like Reid. I know that he looks ready but he is also only 21 or 22 maybe he can go down there and take what he learned from playing in the playoffs and develop some leadership down there? (sounds good to me)
-I don't think that Keane can play a full season. I think that with injuries a player like Reid would still see some time in the NHL, but that depends on if the team wants to have Reid ride the bus constantly between Manitoba and Vancouver.
As I was writing this though my mind started to change about signing Keane. Who knows what to do that's why they pay Brian Burke the big bucks to make these decisions, we get paid nothing so we just *****
