QUESTIONS ARE RAISED IN RECENT BLUES FRONT OFFICE MOVES
Published June 19, 1995
Questions remain in the aftermath of Mike Shanahan's "ouster" as Blues Chair, according to Dave Luecking of the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH. Blues President and CEO Jack Quinn was promoted to take Shanahan's place as the Blues' rep on the NHL Board of Governors, and Quinn said team owners have told him "nothing with the team will change," including Mike Keenan staying on as GM and coach. Officially Kiel Center Partners say they are "streamlining operations," but sources in the "Shanahan camp" say that Emerson Electric Chair & CEO Chuck Knight and Anheuser-Busch Chair & President August Busch III were behind Shanahan's exit. Luecking quotes one source who said that Knight "resented Mike being presented as a good guy," and that Busch was tired of hearing that St. Louis had become a "hockey town" while the brewery "sat on its money" with the MLB Cardinals. Luecking writes that one source even suggested that Cardinals Manager Joe Torre was fired last week "to get Shanahan off the front page" (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 6/17).
