As the Dale Tallon saga unfolds in the media, I was impressed with Martin Havlat's willingness to stick his neck out in standing up for his former GM.

Tallon obviously deserves the bulk of the credit for turning around the fortunes of the Blackhawks in such a short period of time.

Amidst the speculation that his sacking was a goal of the front office, the loyalty of a player who no longer has a personal interest in the team to his former GM speaks volumes about the character and class of Tallon.
