Chicago Blackhawks owner, Rocky Wirtz, says there is no reason why his side cannot win more silverware after they secured their second Stanley Cup in four seasons.The 60-year-old has been in charge of the Blackhawks since 2007 when they were in the middle of a barren run that saw them fail to reach the playoffs for five successive seasons.However, progress was made in 2008-09 when Chicago reached the Conference Finals, and the following year they secured their first Stanley Cup since 1961 when they beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2.After defeats in the Conference quarter-finals in 2011 and 2012, the Blackhawks surprised the NHL betting odds and claimed the fifth Stanley Cup in their history this season when they beat the Boston Bruins 4-2.The current team has what it takes to become the first winner of back-to-back Stanley Cup successes since 1998 when the Detroit Red Wings achieved the feat, with Wirtz saying: “I think we're going to see a lot of good years ahead of us.”In 2010,...

The Chicago Blackhawks signed Bryan Bickell to a four-year deal reportedly worth $16 million.That's a handsome raise for a guy with just 90 points in 220 regular season games. Apparently Chicago's focused on the nine goals and 17 points he collected in 23 postseason contests. That 18.4 shooting percentage isn't likely to stick around, but he could still be fantasy-relevant...

The best part of the Chicago Blackhawks winning the Stanley Cup will be tracking Patrick Kane and his antics this offseason. On Saturday night, he brought the Stanley Cup to a Jimmy Buffett concert and danced around on stage with a parrot hat. He even played the tambourine a bit while looking extremely drunk. It’s safe to say the return of Kaner is in full effect.
Chicago started out hot and never looked back en route to the Stanley Cup. Patrick Kane and company started the season 21-0-3 and cruised to a 36-7-5 finish and the President’s Trophy. Let’s put in our tape of Chelsea Dagger in and hum along as we look back at the champs’ season in fantasy hockey.

One of my favorite themes here at AA in the last year has been unearthing Finnish hockey calls. Why Finnish hockey calls? Because Finland, obviously. And because they're awesome. We've seen a couple throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but this video from Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final may be my favorite foreign language clips in the history of this website. Six...

The Hawks, as reported by Eklund, are close on a 3 year, rumored to be $4.5 million deal with Ray Emeryâto remain in Chicago.
I'm told the Hawk strategy going in to unrestricted free agency is to look for Michal Rozsival-like veteran players to approach them (perhaps including Rozsival) on potentially cap friendly short-term dealsâwith the...
