Another example of TNSE loyalty.
He's as qualified as Jimmy Roy, and Jimmy is doing a fine job IMO.

I just want to say that I love the way True North runs their organization. They hire players/staff that have previously contributed to their organization which helps promote a deep sense of loyalty and commitment. Not to mention that Mike Keane was a great role player and leader in the NHL and for the Moose. I love this hiring.

It doesn't hurt that he is a 3 time Cup winner and played a **** of a lot of games. That experience is invaluable.

I remember an interview with him about a year ago talking about how he wanted to coach in the NHL, this is the first step.

Jets release re; Keane



Here is the Jets release re; Keane

The Winnipeg Jets are pleased to announce they have hired Mike Keane as Player Development Assistant. He will be working closely with Jimmy Roy, who is the Coordinator of Player Development. Keane will focus mainly on amateur and professional teams, with a particular emphasis in the evaluation and development of players with the St. John’s IceCaps.

Keane, 46, played in 1161 career NHL games between Montreal, Colorado, NY Rangers, Dallas, St. Louis and Vancouver. In his 16 year NHL career, Keane recorded 470 career points (168G, 302A) and 881 penalty minutes. He won three Stanley Cup Championships with Montreal (1993), Colorado (1996) and Dallas (1999).

The Winnipeg, MB native finished his playing career with the Manitoba Moose, playing in his hometown from 2005 to 2010. In his time with the Moose, Keane played in 365 career games for 114 career points (36G, 78A) and 244 career penalty minutes.

Wicked news. TN is going to be consistent if nothing else in their blueprint for running an organization.

Looks great against the media banner. I'm guessing that his wife helped him with that one. Would have rather seen a "newsboy" hat in blue tweed though.

This is a tremendous hiring on the part of True North. Not only does it demonstrate loyalty, but also is very merit based hiring as well.

True North wants to be a draft and development based organization.They understand well that it's not enough to draft the right players, but they must develop them properly as well. All too often, the development side of drafting is neglected by teams. That problem doesn't seem to be the case at all with True North. This great hiring of Mike Keane shows that real commitment to the TNSE long term strategy.

This statement in their press release builds on that draft and development concept:

looks like they pulled Mark off the links to attend the presser......wonder if he had on the full Payne Stewart golf pants with knee high sox??


Good hire.......Mike never took a day off in his life and doesn't know how to do it any way other than full speed ahead......he was a "captain/ leader" and he is a winner and you can never have too many of those types around.

This is great news - especially because a friend mentioned that the Jets had hired Mike Keenan. I was WTF, until I checked my Twitter updates which had the correct name.

Lots of plusses from Keane , but the three ring bling is sure to hold the attention of the drafted Jets .

I guess you could say Jets fans are Keane on this choice.
