The Kap Man on The Blackhawks on MNC - Item 121

The One about dropping the letter Q.

Ugh.

Election Day started off Tuesday morning with a change I DID NOT want. The Chicago Blackhawks organization parted ways with Joel Quenneville, one of the winningest coaches in NHL history, for reasons the fanbase is still grappling with 24 hours later.

Wednesday morning on our radio show, my cohost Mark McGill (a Blackhawks brother of the deepest red blood) spoke with the mighty Dave Kaplan. He's a Chicago broadcaster from ESPN 1000 and NBC Sports Chicago, and if it happens with the Hawks...he's the guy to ask.

I remain pissed about Q's dismissal and was only too happy to let McGill handle this particular episode of The Item.
