Isn't it true that when person submit a resignation, his contact is being terminated? I mean Panthers owe him nothing as opposed to balance of his contract pay in case of firing. Why no one consider Keenan fleeing Florida very much like he left NYR some dozen years ago?

When a person resigns, they do not get the rest of the contract. When they are fired, they do.

The difference with Keenan's time in NY was he was claiming that the Rangers were in breach on contract.

My guess is that it basically goes like this, Cohen to Keenan "you can resign if you wants to". Keenan needs Cohens permission to resign, but my point is that if Cohen wants to be nice to Keenan he lets him resign and still get paid, instead of beeing fired and still get paid, it looks better.

Another scenario is that Cohen lets Keenan resign, or tells him that he will be asigned new scout for Florida in Siberia. Don't know if thats possible in the US, its not in Sweden (would be the same as beeing fired). Though my bet is that Keenan was allowed to resign and got a hefty paycheck, instead of beeing fired and paid.

It was probably within the first 10 games of the season, somewhere around there. I think after Keenan went ballistic and broke the stick over the crossbar, the Rangers played the Kings at the Garden in the next game. That's when Tikkanen won the game on a slapper, either in the third period or in overtime.

I would say that all the pieces were in place in 1994, and that included Keenan. Without him, I think you would be looking at an earlier playoff exit (of course, this is pure speculation and it may depend on who became coach).
But the problem is that he hasn't reached that level of success in what 12 years? The thing with Keenan is that for all his success, every team he's been involved with left devastated in his wake.

Obviously the Rangers got the cup, but I doubt all the other teams feel the price was worth the cost in hindsight. Heck one goal difference and we're right there with them, with only the memories of what he cost us to look back on.

At the end of the day Keenan isn't a Bowman, he isn't on "that" level. Now if he was, you could argue that his strategies are worth it. The problem is that his approach is far more likely to implode you team that bring a cup. That one cup is what keeps him afloat, take that away and there is no one willing to take that risk anymore.
