If you're just waking up, you'll probably be shocked to learn that the Edmonton Oilers fired Peter Chiarelli while most of the sports world was asleep.

There's no way to tiptoe around the fact that Oilers fans wanted Chiarelli out, but the move was shocking because of the fact that he just signed Mikko Koskinen to an extension.

Tuesday's loss to the basement-dwelling Red Wings was apparently the last straw, though, and the hockey world had a number of different reactions to the news.

It remains to be seen who will take over for Chiarelli, but it's something the entire hockey world is keeping an eye on.
