Ya, the enmity too many players to name had against Keenan could prolly fill a small villages phone book. Its odd though, as Ive actually met him on numerous occasions, in bars, airports, and he's the nicest guy in the world to have a drink & a chat with. Completely down to earth, no pretensions, quite the sense of humour actually, likes to laugh. Who the heck knows beyond the players themselves what really goes on. No question he's got a brain, could definitely see him being highly manipulative, pushing buttons, likely very difficult for a 20 or early 30 something year old to deal with as most of the players life experiences are confined to a team experience, dressing room dynamics', ice time, who starts in the crease that night, the next 3-5 games, linemates etc.
