from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

“Mike Keenan’s greatest ability as a coach—I’ve seen it—is to get the maximum out of top players and our team has five or six of the top 30 or 40 players in the game,” said Sutter of his longtime associate.
“I think our top players all want it and need it. Our team has evolved from a lesser skilled team and one of the hardest working to a more skilled one that was capable of being very successful.”
Sutter said the move was made after months of evaluations that came down to the fact finishing 14 games above .500 wasn’t good enough. If not Playfair, Keenan was his only other choice.
