Hawks Fire Denis Savard

Even before the start of what looked to be a promising season, rumor was that Chicago Blackhawks head coach Denis Savard might be on the hot seat if the team got off to a slow start — word that was attributed to the arrival of Scotty Bowman as a special adviser in Chicago. Heck, Savard actually made a CBC list of five coaches who could be under the gun before the end of the season, but I still don’t think anyone could imagine that Savard, who by all accounts was doing a good job with his young charges in Chicago, might be let go.

Put that all aside now, as the Blackhawks have given Savard one of the quickest hooks in NHL history, firing him after only four games and replacing him with ex-Blues and Avalanche head coach Joel Quenneville. Here’s Chicago GM Dale Tallon, the only man who could manage to make Atlanta Thrashers GM Don Waddell look thoughtful by comparison, on the change :
“This was an extremely hard day for this organization and for me personally,” Blackhawks general manager Dale Tallon said. “Denis is forever a part of our organization. We made a tough decision that we strongly feel is the right one as we continue to evaluate our team and create a championship caliber organization that can sustain success. Joel brings us a wealth of experience and a winning track record that will have an immediate and lasting impact.”Far be it from me to question Quenneville’s bona fides, but this decision stinks to high heaven.Continue Reading

Crazy Rumor of the Day: Blackhawks Interested in Mats Sundin?

Filed under: Blackhawks, NHL RumorsFormer Maple Leafs center, and current free agent, Mats Sundin hasn’t officially announced whether or not he’s going to be making a return to the NHL this season. There’s certainly been some interest in his services, but his asking price during the free agency period was rumored to be in the area of $10 million per season. That’s why it’s a little hard to believe a note in today’s that the Blackhawks may have an interest in the 37-year old center.

From Len Ziehm:The latest Internet report from Canada has the Hawks expressing interest in former Toronto captain Mats Sundin, who hasn’t decided if he wants to play again. The Hawks would have to clear considerable cap room to sign him.I’m sure the Blackhawks, like most teams, have some sort interest in Sundin. If interest could be defined as, “Hey, wouldn’t he look good playing for us?”

Chicago, as of right now, is pretty tight against the NHL’s salary cap, and if Sundin hasn’t come down significantly from his early season asking price, there’s absolutely no way he’ll be lacing up his skates for the Blackhawks. File this one under: Not likely.
