22 Darryl Sutter
Darryl Sutter played with the Chicago Blackhawks for eight years. The ‘Hawks 11th round pick in 1978 might be more well known as an NHL coach. But before that, he was known as a Chicago Black Hawk.
Sutter was a forward for Chicago during the ’80s, and he managed to put up some pretty productive seasons with the team. Being a Sutter brother, Darryl was well known around the NHL, and I am happy he eventually got to win some championships as a coach, even if it was with Los Angeles.
Sutter would also go on to coach three years with the Blackhawks. During that time, they made the playoffs all three years. The next person on our list is the only person here solely for his job as a coach.
21 Joel Quenneville
Joel Quenneville needs no introduction for Chicago Blackhawks fans. Quenneville was the missing link that helped push the Blackhawks to the championship-caliber that they reached from 2010-2015.
While he did not play with the Chicago Blackhawks, Quenneville was one of the most influential pieces of the Blackhawks championship teams. Quenneville was known in Chicago for his wonderful lineup changes, no matter the time in the season, and for his wonderful one-line answers to questions throughout the season.
Firing Quenneville was when the Chicago Blackhawks truly fell off of the map of contention, and he will always be remembered in this city for what he brought to the team.
