He deserves lots of credit for turning around guys like Jokinen, Joe Thornton, etc. I wonder what changes Keenan would make if he was named GM of the Buffalo Sabres after we lose on Friday.
beware what you wish for. the wrath of keenan is strong. the upside is you usually end up with a franchise player (STL/Pronger, BOS/Thornton, VAN/Bertuzzi, FLA/Jokinen). Hard to argue he wont turn someone into a stud, but it will be at the expense of the rest of the franchise. From my observation, every orgnaization that Keenan has left is as unstable as when he joined it. Dont know you about you, but I prefer stability and calmness in an organization.
