With only 3 Stanley Cup championships since 1926, history shows the Chicago Blackhawks are one of the Wirtz, sorry, I mean worst franchises in professional sports.
Despite their continued bumbling, there have been no shortage of great players and characters who truly cared and tried, giving those hard-up Chicago fans feint hope.
Players like the late Keith Magnuson, who bled Blackhawk red.
Players like Bill Mosienko, whose Hall of Fame career was overshadowed by 21 seconds of immortality.
Players like Kenny Wharram, who put the scoot in the scooter line.
Up and down goalies with moments of brilliance such as Al Rollins, Alfie Moore and Murray Bannerman.
Old school players like Paul Thompson, Mike Karakas, and Johnny Gottselig and more recent legends such as Darryl Sutter, Steve Larmer and Doug Wilson.
And of course the true superstars: Max Bentley, Pierre Pilote, Bobby Hull, Glenn Hall, Tony Esposito, Denis Savard and, I promise, soon Stan Mikita.
It is for those fans that I've been busy adding content to my Chicago Blackhawks Legends section.
