The NHL sends Mike Keenan a memo telling him to tone down the antics or his team would face fines and suspensions. Keenan's response? He immediately calls up Brad Norton
and Rocky Thompson
to add to the mayham.
Gotta love it.
Is that REALLY true?
Do we have any REAL proof of this? (memo or a link, etc) - I ask because that would be pathetic for a league telling a franchise how to play or compete in a league
Yet it wouldnt surpise me either
