Keenan Dispute Settled

n NEW YORK () -- In a settlement that will cost him more than half a million dollars, Mike Keenan will become coach and general manager of the St. Louis Blues.


"I think Bettman did a fabulous job bringing the parties together and resolving this situation," Keenan said Monday, referring to National Hockey League commissioner Gary Bettman, who settled the dispute between Keenan, the New York Rangers and the Blues.


The resolution included a 60-day suspension without pay for Keenan, and a trade that sent Petr Nedved to the Rangers for Esa Tikkanen and Doug Lidster. Keenan must return four-fifths of his $500,000 Rangers signing bonus, whom he coached last season to their first Stanley Cup in 54 years.
