Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Prospect Camp is right around the corner, but for the veterans on the Chicago Blackhawks what is left to play for legacy wise? 

This is my question everytime I see Bobby Hull or Tony Esposito and even Denis Savard. What will 10 year old kids think of Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane 30, 40 years from now?

When you talk about Hull or Stan Mikita do you think of the 1961 Stanley Cup Championship? Do you think about how they sit on top of almost every Blackhawks franchise record, or do you think about the Cups they should have won like the 1971 Stanley Cup Final that they lost in Chicago Stadium with a 2 goal lead.

Now when you talk about this era of hockey what will their legacy be? If they never win another Stanley Cup will there ever be doubts about what If? Or has winning 3 Cups in 6 seasons, and Gary Bettman declaring them a dynasty solidify their spot like the 85 Bears and the 90’s Chicago Bulls as one of the city’s great franchises.

When the Hawks bring back old pieces to the fold will their legacy stay the same if they never win again or fail trying? Will we remember Brian Campbell as the big free agent signing that helped win the 2010 Cup and end the drought or will it be the old guy that was playing during the Nashville sweep in 2017?

This core group has won more than anyone probably ever expected, and now they seem to be on the edge of decline, so do they have one more Cup run left in them in the next two years or will we be talking about 17 seconds for years and years to come as the Glory days of Chicago Blackhawks hockey.

Of course I want more who doesn’t!
