Lemaire A Perfect Fit For Calgary

from Steve MacFarlane of the Calgary Sun,

Expected to address the media sometime Monday, Sutter wouldn’t surprise anyone if he cut Keenan loose.

The question is who comes in if Iron Mike isn’t back as he said he believed he’d be for the final season on a three-year contract?

While many would jump at the chance to coach a team with as much talent as the Flames—on paper if not in practise over the past few post-seasons—few would keep their hands in the air if told it would be a one-year deal.

He’d have to be a little crazy.

Jacques Lemaire would be perfect.

Formerly of the Flames’ Northwest Division foe Minnesota Wild, Lemaire has often been accused of having a couple of screws loose.

He’s also a great coach.

And just what this team needs after struggling to return to the defensive roots that in 2004 got it past the first round in its first playoff appearance in eight years.
