from Mike Brophy of CBC,
With four NHL head coaching jobs open, coupled with the fact he just won the KHL championship, you'd think Mike Keenan would be itching to get back to the NHL.
You would be wrong.
"I actually never thought about it and I don't think about it anymore," Keenan told me Tuesday. "People had an opportunity to hire me before and they didn't.
"I was out [of coaching] for about three years and doing TV, and when the opportunity to coach in Russia came along, I took some time to think about it and then decided to do it. They want me back, and at this point that's the only option I have.
"I'm too old to be sitting here worrying about if I'm going to get a chance to coach in the NHL again. I did not take the job in the KHL as a vehicle to get me back to the NHL. I know I can coach in the NHL, but there is no interest."
