Brilliant Move Hiring Keenan

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

While team officials closed ranks last night, refusing to comment, it was confirmed Playfair will stay in the organization, likely as an assistant coach.
And while many fans wanted the relatively inexperienced Playfair out after going 14 games above .500 in his rookie year, few will be happy Keenan is his replacement.
He’s that controversial. That brash. That abrasive.
Truth is, it’s a brilliant move.
First, having worked with Keenan in Chicago, Sutter knows the 57-year-old disciplinarian well and has modeled his coaching style after the fifth-winningest bench boss in NHL history.
