It's great to hear this. it's great to know that chicago appreciated the likes of Hull, Mikita, Savard, etc.. those great players didn't go to waste in a city that didn't care about hockey. you've made me realize for the 1st time that Chicago isn't a bandwagon town and not know anything about hockey, but that they were/are really a great hockey town too.

thanks for that post.
Keep in mind I was around then, this is just going off what I read and what my dad and other family and family friends all tell me, even the ones who don't care at all about hockey.
