Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links: The D Word

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks are back in the Stanley Cup Finals and the D word was thrown around a lot lately.  First off, the Chicago Blackhawks have made the Cup Final, but they haven’t won anything yet.  Secondly, the D word should only be handed out to a team with at least one back to back championship seasons.

The Chicago Blackhawks are now heading to the Sunshine State and a shot at some serious legacy. Sure, they have two Stanley Cups on the mantel, but you throw three Cups in 6 seasons on a resume and that goes down as an all-timer team.

It all begins on Wednesday night and although there’s a wait let’s not forget the 9 day wait for the Western Conference Finals to kick off so I’m sure we can take a deep breath and hold on for another day to get the Finals started.

Here are some morning links to kick off your Tuesday Morning.
