From The Fourth Period: Dale Tallon Finds Solution to His Cap Concerns (say I, not the fourth period; their headline was more like "Blackhawks fire Tallon")

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 clubs assistant GM, will be taking over as GM.Tallon was named the eighth GM in team history on June 21, 2005. Prior to becoming GM, he served as assistant GM, and was the clubs director of player personnel from 1998-2002.Tallons job had reportedly been on the fence since the Hawks season had ended.Sources close to the situation tell TFP "the embarrassment over the negative publicity of the contract situation regarding the clubs restricted free agents was the clinching blow."The Blackhawks were believed to be late in notifying the agents of their main RFAs that they had received qualifying offers. As a result, the Hawks had signed those players, including Cam Barker and Kris Versteeg, to new contracts.More details to come as the story develops.
