Glad Burke signed Keane. As some of you may know, I've been pushing for this move ever since Keane came to camp on a tryout contract. Keane is a valuable player because he brings a lot of leadership and experience to the playoffs. In fact, he's the only Canuck with a Stanley Cup ring (he has
, actually). Plus he's pretty good defensively and can help us out on the penalty killing unit. He's signed to a reasonable contract, understands that he may be a part-timer for us and is willing to be so. I have absolutely no problem with this move. Just one of those depth guys that every championship team needs.
