TFP has confirmed that the Chicago Blackhawks fired general manager Dale Tallon late Monday and an official announcement will be made on Tuesday.
TFP Columnist and Comcast Chicago anchor Josh Mora has also confirmed that Stan Bowman, the club’s assistant GM, will be taking over as GM.
So I guess the little fuck up with the RFAs ended up being not so little.
UPDATE: Blackhawks official press release.
UPDATE(again): After the ousting of Tallon as GM, former Blackhawk Martin Havlat is apparently going to talk about his own depature from Chicago. From his Twitter page:
I guess everyone saw what happened to Dale….yes, the story is starting to come out but it’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Then, two minutes later:
Lot’s of people are telling me to stay quiet but shouldn’t the fans know the truth? It’s your loyalty, season ticket money and emotions here
What do you people think? Interested to know your thoughts.
No, now lastly,
Just so everyone begins to understand, Dale was like a 2nd father to me.
Could there be another side to this debacle?
We shall wait and see.
