That's our own doing. Chicago had the piece of mind to take their medicine and look where it got them. We've insisted we could buy a cup contender for decades. We've won a single cup in 70+ years. We tried to be good and instead managed to suck. In my book, that's way worse than sucking and winding up with some elite talent and a Stanley Cup.

That's NY sports. Envy everyone else's talent, but thumb your nose up because they had the humility to get them.
