Bizarre turn of events in KHL. After losing 2nd straight game, Mike Keenan was fired when he arrived at the arena this morning.

Keenan is unclear as to what his future with the team or league is at this point, but says he's been told his citizenship will be granted.

Heh, all this a day after the whole hullabaloo about his Russian citizenship and how well he fit in over there.

I’m guessing they’ve actually wanted Kennan gone for some time, and have been just looking for a reason to justify it.  If you look at the standings, Metallurg is 4th in the Kharlamov, but with a 13-8-0 record and everyone in front of them has 2 or 3 games on them.

They probably just wanted to hire a cheaper coach, and back to back losses was a convenient excuse.
