Iron Mike has thrown his black hat in the Devils’ ring.
Mike Keenan, the only coach in 70 years to lead the Rangers to a Stanley Cup, told The Post he is interested in trying to end the Devils’ seven-year drought.
“I’m interested in coaching, not just any possible job, but with somebody like Lou [Lamoriello], who has a lot of experience and continues to formulate strong teams, probably the best in the game, well . . .” Keenan said yesterday.
Ten veterans on the Avalanche’s playoff roster have expiring contracts and will be unrestricted free agents July 1 if the team doesn’t re-sign them.
Colorado general manager Greg Sherman wouldn’t talk this week specifically about whom the team will attempt to bring back, saying the Avalanche will have organizational evaluation meetings in the upcoming weeks.
I know a lot of us have been through this debate plenty of time but I strongly believe that we will find out in less than a few months. As we all know both the Habs netminders are turning RFA this off-season with only 10.5 millions left! The problems isn’t the amount Price and Halak would be making but the rosters spots the habs still have to fill with guys like Metropolite , Moore , Lapierre , SK, Bergeron, Darche, Pouiliot and Plekanec all turning RFAs or UFAs it seems impossible to sign both of our prospect goaltenders.
All about a 24-year-old goaltender whose previous playoff experience amounted to a mere 97 minutes spread over two seasons – and how he had to make 45 stops leading the Canadiens to a 3-2 overtime victory against the Washington Capitals in Game 1.
