After the Montreal Canadiens hired Marc Bergevin -- a good friend of Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville -- to be their new general manager, some speculated that Quenneville might follow Bergevin to Montreal. Quenneville addressed the issue on Tuesday:
"I think over the last few days there was some speculation on other things that were going on about here in Chicago and me being somewhere else, and first and foremost, I'm excited about being here in Chicago," Quenneville said on a conference call. "I love the opportunity, I love the organization, I love where we're heading in the future and that's something I wanted to put to bed right from the outset."
