No shock even if they hire him. He's a good coach.

He is a good coach.
Handled himself pretty well in a tough media market.
I think he'll have plenty of opportunities.
He should take some time to recharge.

I always wonder when coaches get hired so soon after getting let go. Feels like both the team and the coach would benefit from there being more distance between their past job and their new one.

In Keefe's situation he probably doesn't want to get too far removed from the list of coaches in people's minds.  It would be different it he were already one of the re-treads that keeps getting hired over and over again and never forgotten about, but he's a new guy, so he wants to keep his name out there and relevant.  That's my guess anyway.

28 NHL teams changed NHL head coaches or are in the process of changing them since 2022

Average NHL head coach tenure is around 2.28 years.

From what I've seen of the available coaches list going around, I doubt Keefe has too much to worry about.
