Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The other night I posed this question. Which Chicago Blackhawks player did you not see play in their prime that you wish you could see play on today’s team in their prime.
The one sad part of this question was how old I am compared to most of our Twitter followers because the overwhelming answer late at night was Chris Chelios who I got to see play many of times while in high school and college. Getting old sucks and so that answer really tells me how old I really am now.

The other answer that I would say was a close second was Tony Esposito. He won over 400 games, but if you’re not in your 50’s you probably never watched him play except on some old video highlights. I never got to see him play in his prime either, because when i started watching the Hawks it was Murray Bannerman in net with Tony O. being the old veteran backup.
Here are some of the Twitter replies we got from the question this past week.
