There is a reason or many reasons why Ted Nolan has not been hired again as an NHL head coach. After making a risky hire in Bruce Cassidy there is no way that the Capitals will follow that with another coaching hire that is risky. Nolan is not a sure shot, quality, character guy. Hiring him just adds to the building image that the Capitals are a desperate and longs crew. Keenan, who makes no sense for the Caps, makes more sense than Nolan.
