Keenan's methods have been well-documented but some players have admitted he was the best coach for whom they played. It was a huge burden for some in a short period of time. Ron Sutter had a sour taste because Keenan would often use him to get to Rich Sutter, not one of Keenan's favorites. Some, like Derrick Smith and Ron Hextall, were generally supportive.
Here is the quote from Steve Duchesne when he was traded to Philly the first time: "I couldn't believe the Kings could trade a young defenseman for a 31-year old forward. I thought that was kind of ridiculous. I was really ticked off. Actually, I still am. I love Los Angeles. I have a house here. Luc (Robitaille) called me right away. He was very upset. I've spoken to their (Flyers) PR people. They're expecting me to be the next Mark Howe. Woah! Nothing like putting pressure on someone."
