Blackhawks Fire Coach Denis Savard

The first week into the season and we have our first coaching casualty. The Blackhawks announced today that they have fired Denis Savard and replaced him with former Avalanche coach Joel Quennville.

While the Blackhawks have looked bad in their first four games, did the change need to be made. More importantly, the change is not going to make much of a difference. The coaching might have been bad, but I think that the players cannot just handle the pressure of being under the spotlight. Led be Captain Choker himself, Brian Campbell, this clubhouse may not have the right type of leadership to be able to handle the issues that happen when things go bad and when things go well. This Blackhawk team is a young team that may have some more growing up to do before they actually hit the big time.
