There are those who believe Elvis Presley is still alive. There are those who believe Mike Keenan resigned as general manager of the Florida Panthers on the weekend. The former group has a better chance of being right. The Panthers, now serious contenders with the New York Islanders and Chicago Blackhawks in the battle to become the National Hockey League's most dysfunctional team, announced Keenan had "resigned" and that Jacques Martin would be assuming double duties as coach/GM. That is what's known as making a bad situation worse.continued added 7:44am, from Spector at Fox Sports,
Considered the face of the franchise for several seasons, Luongo is almost universally considered one of the game's elite netminders, despite never playing a single NHL playoff game. Keenan's inexplicable hard line approach to contract talks with Luongo, however, created a poisonous atmosphere between the two, ultimately resulting in Luongo's trade to Vancouver in June. I have a feeling that may have led to the beginning of the end for Keenan.
