I remember when the Blackhawks spent 19 years outside looking in before reaching a final. NOW, they can do this in their sleep. Like last night.
Actually, the Hawks and Bruins are 2 teams that give me a bit of hope: they both sucked forever, hit rock bottom, and rebuilt and went on to win the Cup. The only "problem" with the Kings is they never hit rock bottom enough to get the #1 pick - a game changer.
Even after the Hawks and Bruins started to improve, they both took several years to really make some noise in the playoffs. Hopefully, the Kings will win a playoff round (or 2) this season.
