Should the Blackhawks finally change their goal song?
By Jimmy Lynch
The Chicago Blackhawks have had Chelsea Dagger as their goal song since the 2008-09 season, and since then that song has haunted teams from across the league.
The Chicago Blackhawks seem to be entering into a new era for the team. Whether it be the McDonough firing or the fact that we have not been in the playoffs in five seasons, but things definitely seem to be changing for the Blackhawks.
The days of Toews and Kane are going to end sooner rather and later. Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook have their best days with the Blackhawks behind them, and all of that lets the team enter into a new era.
Maybe the best way to start off fresh would be to introduce a new goal song for the team and fans to rally behind. Your goal song is the first thing that comes to mind when a goal is scored or a team wins a game, the Blackhawks might as well introduce something new to help show this is not the same Blackhawks team from the 2010s.
I loved watching the Blackhawks win three Stanley Cups in six seasons, and I loved seeing the team score countless goals during that time. I cheered and clapped during plenty of goal celebrations in the United Center in the past 12 or so years, but I think keeping Chelsea Dagger as the Blackhawks goal song during their trying next few seasons to come is going to ruin it.
Some teams have already shaken things up with goal songs. Some have given each individual player their own song for when they score a goal. Think of that as a walk-up song in Major League Baseball, I think if the Blackhawks wanted to give each player their own song that would make things rather interesting and fun for fans to root for their favorite player.
While I know that a goal song might not be on the top of anyone’s list right now, I think it is a fun thing to think about and could be something to bridge the gap between the 2020 season and the 2021 season.
