Mike Keenan's turbulent term as general manager and coach of the St. Louis Blues ended Thursday when he was fired, 2 1/2 years after the Blues lured him away from the New York Rangers in a controversial and costly deal. Keenan was dismissed two weeks after he brought his long-simmering feud with Brett Hull to a boil by benching Hull, the only high-profile player Keenan hadn't driven out of town. Team President Jack Quinn was also dismissed but was offered a job as a consultant.

The St. Louis Blues mortgaged their future when they paid high-scoring Brett Hull $7 million for a four-year contract this summer. There are early indications this season they did not make a mistake. Hull, son of former great Bobby Hull, scored 72 goals to lead the National Hockey League last season and he is off to a great start in a bid to improve on that. Hull scored three goals and assisted on another Wednesday night at Toronto to lead the Blues to an 8-3 victory over the Maple Leafs.

Brian Sutter, fired by the St. Louis Blues last month one season after being named the NHL's coach of the year, was hired Tuesday by the Boston Bruins. Sutter, 35, signed a four-year contract to succeed Rick Bowness, who was fired Monday after one season, one that saw him take the Bruins to the Stanley Cup semifinals. Sutter, with St. Louis for 12 seasons as a player and the last four as a coach, was the winningest coach in the club's history with a 153-124-43 record.
