I don't see him as the best source for information about any player. I even doubt that Eklund would have played as much as he did if Keenan could find even an half as decent playmaker for the flyers.

Perhaps we could even blame Keenan for Eklund short career as he didn't like his player to rest when injured and definitly not the soft swede. There were also the divorce where the ex-wife left for Sweden with their son. Eklunds best seasons came when Keenan was gone.
Keenan certainly had his weaknesses, but why do you say he hated the Euros?
