from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail, There is an extraordinary situation in Chicago where head coach Joel Quenneville and general manager Stan Bowman now have an uneasy peace after months of conflict both in and out of the public eye. Both Bowman and Quenneville will now go about their jobs under the demanding presence of Blackhawks president John McDonough, who does not hesitate to put the boots to anyone he finds lacking. Just ask Dale Tallon, whose thanks for putting together the team that eventually won the 2010 Stanley Cup was a one-way trip to Florida. If the Blackhawks recover from two consecutive exits from the first round of the NHL playoffs since their Cup win, Quenneville and Bowman will live happily ever after, albeit with the odd forced grin. If not, Quenneville and maybe even Bowman will have to answer to McDonough. The uneasy truce was necessary because the tension between Quenneville and Bowman was starting to affect the players. continued
