I was one of his staunchest defenders but the way he played out of character last season and ended up rightfully being demoted there is no way you can blame Feaster. The Lightning were very clear with Keefe, play your role as a checking line agitator and we'll give you a spot shot here and there on a scoring line as injuries and the like dictate. Keefe was so gung ho to have a big offensive year last year in his contract season that he largely ignored the first part of the equation and by the time he was demoted he was only a shell of himself. That's to say nothing of the fact that he didn't capitalize on the few scoring line opportunities he did get. A Sheldon Keefe who isn't playing a gritty, agitating style of game doesn't belong in the NHL, and at that time demotion to the minors was justified.

He's just got to shut his mouth, put up numbers in the AHL like we know he can, and bide his time. Eventually he'll be included in a package out of here.
