Chicago is relatively similar to us as a hockey market. When the Blackhawks are good they get tons of attention and when they're bad they get ignored in favor of the Bulls, Bears, Cubs, etc. Bill Wirtz squeezed the life out of that team for decades. He leaves the picture and a modern management group comes in and suddenly BOOM: They win two cups and turn into a perennial juggernaut.
