From Chris Kuc at the Chicago Tribune:
With the hiring of Joel Quenneville as Savard’s replacement, some of the focus of the rest of the management team, consisting of Wirtz, McDonough and senior adviser Scotty Bowman, likely will shift to Tallon.
“I can handle it,” Tallon said of the scrutiny. “That’s what we’re in this business for. As John has said, this is a big boys table, a big boys club. We’re here to win. I’m going to give it my all.”
The Hawks have made three coaching changes since Tallon was named the eighth general manager in team history June 21, 2005. Tallon’s first act was to let coach Brian Sutter go. His replacement, Trent Yawney, was dumped Nov. 27, 2006.
Update 1:36pm ET: Blackhawks press release on new additions to coaching staff—
The Chicago Blackhawks announced today the addition of Marc Bergevin as an assistant coach on Joel Quenneville’s staff. Bergevin, 43, is currently in his third season in the Blackhawks front office, having previous served on the scouting staff, which includes his most recent stint as the director of professional scouting. The Montreal native joins John Torchetti, Mike Haviland and goaltending coach Stephane Waite as the fourth member on Quenneville’s staff.
