Flames fire Mike Keenan
2 hours ago

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Mike Keenan was fired as coach of the Calgary Flames on Friday, almost a month after his team lost in the first round of the playoffs for the second straight year.

Keenan spent just two seasons with Calgary, and general manager Darryl Sutter said expectations were not met.

"Taking into consideration all factors affecting our season-ending result, we believe this is a necessary change required to allow our team to continue toward our objective of winning the Stanley Cup," Sutter said.

The Flames finished the regular season with 46 wins and 98 points, but they were ousted in the first round in six games by the Chicago Blackhawks.

Keenan, who had one year remaining on his contract, said following the playoff loss to Chicago that he believed he would be back to finish his deal.

"I have another year left on my contract," Keenan said. "My expectation is to be here to fulfill my contract."

Keenan was hired as the Flames coach in June 2007, replacing Jim Playfair. He leaves Calgary with an 88-60-16 regular-season record. His 672 victories rank fourth on the career coaching list.

Keenan has coached eight of the 30 teams in the league. He has also led Philadelphia, Chicago, the New York Rangers, St. Louis, Vancouver, Boston and Florida. He won the Stanley Cup in 1994 with the Rangers.

Ol' Mike will find work again. He's the Larry Brown of the NHL. :P

Calgary Flames goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff is retiring from the NHL, the team announced on Monday afternoon.
The decision is one which many expected, as it was widely reported that the 36-year-old goaltender intended to conclude his career after 2013. In fact, Kiprusoff's decision to retire this summer might have occurred many years ago. His former coach, Mike Keenan :yuck: , stated in March that the goaltender negotiated his six-year, $35 million contract under the guise of retiring before the 2013-14 season. This is evidenced by the dramatic decline in annual payment in the framework of his contract, specifically in the final year where he is scheduled to earn $1.5 million
