Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! We are still one day away from the Chicago Blackhawks next game against the Anaheim Ducks so it’s another filler day!

The funny thing about the Chicago Blackhawks in the past 10 years has been how offended die hard Blackhawks fans have been about bandwagon fans jumping on and cheering the Blackhawks.

First off it’s funny to me because before Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews joined the organization, the Chicago Blackhawks had their worst 10 year span in the franchise’s history.  Yes, if you liked going to Blackhawks games you could get cheap tickets to the United Center any game day.

Of course their were a few people that cheered for those terrible teams that hate the new fanbase, but hey the Chicago Blackhawks are a fun team to watch and Championships brands loyalty.

So now CBS put out a study that the Chicago Blackhawks have the most loyal fans in the NHL.  Does that come from being a winning franchise for the past decade or is it because they really have the best fans?

If you want to believe the hype, I would have thought it was the Detroit Red Wings having the most loyal fans, but does their mediocrity after a decade of greatness wear away from loyalty? I think it’s a combo, and something that Stan Bowman needs to work on and why I’m glad he didn’t trade Alex DeBrincat at the trade deadline.
