Mike Keenan?

Don't ask my why this on wikipedia, but it is.

NHL Network sources confirm that Mike Keenan's NHL coaching career may come full circle as Flyers' management seeks to replace embattled Head Coach John Stevens with Keenan in the immediate future.
Coming from a Flames fan who didn't mind Keenan as coach, you don't want him. The difference between him and a coach like Sutter is night and day. Keenan is not a good coach for goaltenders and would most likely be terrible for Emery.

Keenan has no system, just employs a man-on-man out work the opponent philosophy. It takes alot out of the guys and is very physically demanding, it led to the collapse in 08 for the Flames and another 1st rd exit. Keenan was then fired after 2 years.

Conroy also came out to the media and admitted Keenan would TEXT players every day letting them know when and where practice was. Wtf is that? There was no set time no set place, **** was always up in the air. That's not good coaching.

Unsourced. I have my doubts. At least the Laviolette rumor has TSN behind it.

The known report is Laviolette.

But they are just "talking"

I predict:

"This is being discussed in the Stevens Fired thread. This is closed".

Just noticed, but great writing in "confirmed ... may". What is it now?

Definitely:


I call *********. Bring in Laviolette.

Keenan is notorious for not knowing how to deal with or use goaltenders properly, which is not something you want with Emery on your roster. The man has failed in every city he's been. You're better off with Laviolette.

Keenan should only be hired after the first 60 or 70 candidates say no.
