ISSUES LINGER OVER KEENAN'S ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK

     In New York, Jay Greenberg reports that the Rangers have not
fulfilled promises the team allegedly made following the
departure of former coach Mike Keenan.  Among the issues:  The
Rangers had agreed to drop a lawsuit against Keenan as part of
the settlement that freed their former coach to go to the Blues;
the Rangers have also refused to pay $208,000 the team owes
Keenan; Blues President Jack Quinn alleges that Rangers GM Neil
Smith has not met with Quinn to discuss a trade to supplement the
deal that Petr Nedved to the Rangers.  Quinn said he contacted
Smith last Saturday about the trade: "Neil was a little faint of
memory.  I indicated to him that this was not a figment of my
imagination."  While the promise of a supplemental trade is not
in writing, Quinn said he is considering meeting with NHL
Commissioner Gary Bettman to resolve the matter (N.Y. POST,
9/27).
