ISSUES LINGER OVER KEENAN'S ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK
Published September 27, 1994
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).
