New GMs Named

There are some more signs that the NHL expects to end the lockout before next season. Teams are naming new GMs. Anaheim announced former Vancouver Canuck GM Brian Burke will be there GM. Burke is one of the best GMs out there and should lead the Ducks to respectability. Chicago called a press conference where they will name Dale Tallon their current assistant GM to be their GM. Coincidentally, Tallon has a Canuck tie as well, as he was the first Vancouver amateur draft pick ever. Tallon has been a longtime Chicago executive. He's not likely to be much of a GM, but he has shown an ability to be a "yes-man" for Chicago owner Bill Wirtz and Bob Pulford.
