Well that's funny because a couple of months ago:

"I first learned of these allegations through the media earlier this summer,'' Quenneville said Tuesday in a statement provided by the Panthers.

“I had no knowledge of any allegations involving Mr. Aldrich until asked if I was aware of anything just prior to the conclusion of his employment with the Chicago Blackhawks," Cheveldayoff said, via the team-issued statement. "After confirming that I had no prior knowledge of anything, I had no further involvement.

Bowman's out, apparently.

I can't believe this didn't save his job:

Worth noting that Sportico valued the Blackhawks at $1.56 billion recently.

Let this be a lesson to the rest of you NHL teams, foul up a serious allegation of sexual assault this badly in the future and it may cost you 1.5% of your yearly revenue.

Doesn't all suspension/fine money go to various charities the league supports?

I might be mistaken, but I think it goes to the various funds set up by/for players and alumni.

I mean I guess it’s something but it really is baffling how the end result of this is the firing of a GM who was probably on his last legs anyway and a token fine of insignificant amount.
