We COULD Have Gotten Tallon...
So let's get this straight.
First, the Florida Panthers hire Dale Tallon to be their new GM.
And now: the Tampa Bay Lightning have hired Steve Yzerman to be their new GM.
Let's widen the scope a bit, and survey the entire GM scene here in the Southeast Division.
Tallon for the Panthers, Yzerman for the Lightning, George McPhee for the Washington Capitals, and Jim Rutherford for the Carolina Hurricanes.
Did I leave anyone out?
Oh yes. Rick Dudley for the Atlanta Thrashers.
Now, don't get me wrong. I do think Dudley will be marginally better than Waddell. But that's not setting the bar particularly high. Point is: the Thrashers will continue to be themselves.
Your Chronicle will be on absolute, total hiatus until after Memorial Day. No Internet for any of us, sirs and mesdames, because we're headed to some exotic locales. First up is our nation's capital, Ovechkingrad, and then on to an exotic desert isle for Razor Catch Prey's bachelor party. If you miss us, there's plenty of Ten Gallon Dick around here.
