The popular "Joel Quenneville's Mustache" Facebook page had over 42K fans and was one of the most popular spots for #Blackhawks fans to gather online.— Kevin Kaduk (@KevinKaduk) November 18, 2021

There’s 13 tweets in that thread and I don’t want to include the whole thing but it’s an interesting story of a fan who had a tough call to make in their fandom.
"I don't blame anyone who wants to walk away from the team entirely. And I don't blame anyone who wants to stick around and support the young players who weren't even there when this happened. Everyone is coping with it differently."— Kevin Kaduk (@KevinKaduk) November 18, 2021
Four NHL GMs on the Hot Seat - Sports Illustrated
Jim Benning is not on the hot seat. Jim Benning is sitting in the flames.
Listen, I could sit here and write a well constructed argument for why Benning is not only worthy of the hot seat, but should be considered the worst active general manager in the NHL, And I’m sure my editor would love that. He might even give me a crisp high five, which would make my day. But that would be a fruitless endeavour.
No, I’m simply going to let Benning’s transactions speak for themselves.
It’s astounding to me he hasn’t been fired.
