I must say, it is quite strange how this all works.
The Wolves and Blackhawks aren't on speaking terms. When the Wolves started in 1994, Bill Wirtz darn near had a stroke. The Hawks showed no games on local TV. Dollar Bill wanted everybody to buy a ticket to see his team. The Wolves won 4 cups, 2 IHL and 2 AHL, while the Hawks were bottom feeders until recent years.
