Dale Tallon, after 10 seasons, out as Florida Panthers GM
The Florida Panthers will have a new general manager next season, making the announcement early Monday that Dale Tallon is leaving the franchise after 10 years. For the last decade, Dale raised the teams profile, attracted key players to South Florida and brought character and class to our franchise, Viola said. And Roberto Luongo, the longtime Panthers goalie whose jersey was retired by the club earlier this year, is expected to remain with Florida. Luongo was brought on this season as a special advisor to Tallon, but is not believed to be a GM candidate. And if Quenneville turns the Panthers into a winner, once again Tallon will be watching from elsewhere.
