Keenan's tenure here were the worst years for Canucks fans, and players too. It's a big mistake if it proves to be true. Not that I'm a Flames fan, but still.
Couldn't have said it better myself.:clap:Keenan is a jackass and while his abrasive style might whip the players into some short-term winning, in the end he'll rip the team apart.
I don't believe he's even made the playoffs in any of his posts since NY, or if he has it hasn't been a long run.Say what you want about Mike Keenan, but he helped guide the NY Rangers to the first Stanley Cup in my lifetime. For the record, I am going on 59.
Wouldn't be quite the same, since #11 hasn't been retired by Calgary, the way Wayne Maki's #11 got "unretired." It would still be worth it to see half of Alberta up in arms over Messier in red.Well, wouldn't it be wild if he pulled Messier out of retirement, making him the captain, and stripping Iginla of the "C". That would be just too much deja vu.
Dr. G, as a Calgary fan, I'm just going to ask you once to STOP with the Messier talk right now. Because if you continue, I'm gonna have to come out there and smack you around. Matter of fact, I think I'm probably have to go see Mr. Sutter and smack him around too just for hiring Keenan. If Kipper leaves, I will.Messier hoisting another Stanley Cup, as he did in NYC as a Ranger would be a grand sight.
We were swept by the Oilers in 4 straight that season in the Smythe Division finals.In 1988 the Flames went to the finals, but lost to Montreal.
Fair enough. The memories get hazy and confused (they were some great years though, eh?). Which year was the Smith goal?We were swept by the Oilers in 4 straight that season in the Smythe Division finals.
We did win the President's Trophy though.
It was the 85-86 season that we went to the finals and lost to Montreal.
CBCThe Ottawa Senators have fired general manager John Muckler in a surprising move that could be announced on Sunday, according to a report in the Toronto Sun.
Canoe“No decision on John’s (future) has yet to be decided .... by any of the parties,” said Mlakar. “And, decisions on multiple fronts, WON’T (his emphasis) be decided until the end of the weekend.”
Mlakar’s e-mail went on to confirm that roles are changing: “The organization continues, and intends to continue, to work through exciting new plans and objectives for all senior management. This is not unusual.”
