After the Chicago Blackhawks’ disappointing first-round exit, is there anyone who could be safe from GM Stan Bowman’s chopping block?

Chicago Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman put everyone on notice in his end-of-season press conference last week. He said that only coach Joel Quenneville was safe. Since that press conference, Bowman has fired Mike Kitchen, Quenneville’s longtime assistant coach and confidant. Bowman then slept on it and decided to let go of Ted Dent, Rockford IceHogs head coach.

If you dig a little deeper, Dent was very outspoken against Bowman’s moves with regard to the IceHogs. Dent would apologize to fans on Twitter after Spencer Abbott, Sam Carrick and Mark McNeill — the team’s leading scorers — were traded.

Dent also failed to mention that his team stunk even with Abbott, Carrick and McNeill. The trades also benefited the players with a change of scenery. McNeill especially needed a change of scenery. Dent’s firing shouldn’t have been a shock.

Bowman’s offseason plan should include firing Tommy Hawk

Bowman huffed and puffed and has made two moves. Now that Bowman has fired two coaches, who is next on the chopping block?

Let’s go ahead and fire Blackhawks mascot Tommy Hawk. You heard me, fire Tommy Hawk!

He doesn’t get fans into games like he should at the United Center. It was his fault the Blackawks didn’t seem to care about the playoff series with Nashville. Tommy should have gotten the most out of the team during his two home games!

Tommy clearly is not good at his job. Everyone knew the Wild mascot was going to hit him with a bat during the All-Star Game festivities this year. He should have seen it coming, and it damaged his future performances as a result.

It’s his fault we are going to watch the Blues take on the Predators in the West semifinals. Bowman is looking shake things up, and this move would be a shake up!

Who else can Bowman fire? His dad, Scotty Bowman?

All kidding aside

Bowman’s hands are really tied because of the salary cap situation — a salary cap situation that he caused with some now-questionable deals. All Bowman can do right now is subtract unrestricted free agents and hope Vegas takes Marcus Kruger.

Here is some free agent advice for Bowman.

I love Tommy Hawk, by the way #birdlove.
