Mike Keenan is coaching his 8th NHL team.
Can you name the previous 7?
No googling Z!
flyers, blackhawks (2x?), most recently panthers, and maybe st. louis? don’t know the others … but i do know his teams don’t win the big game.
Well as a hint one of his teams did win the big game. He only coached there one season.
The best Keenan story, he caught Mats Naslund (not Matt Snaslund) smoking, made him Skate til he puked. He was still one of the all-time Sega NHL 93 best.
Rangers and Canucks were two more.
Speaking of Rangers and Canucks. iTunes is now selling great Stanley Cup games, $1.99. I couldn’t resist buying 1994, Game 7. What a finals. Not many choices yet, but kind of cool. Won’t be buying game 4 of 97.
My favorite Keenan moment may be the story how he made Peter Zezel dress in the Zamboni room before games and practice.
There’s another story how he was so pissed at Kovalev taking long shifts he punished him by not letting him come off the ice. He kept waving him back into play. It may not have been his most effective punishment because Kovalev took it as a compliment.
arty, i have a VHS of the rangers season that year. abc produced it. it’s not bad. there is a great highlight of kovalev toe-dragging then ripping a wrister.
