Guy was a power forward with skill, scored 30+ 3 times and if it weren't for back issues could have been a real good player for a long time.
For me the low point was 98-99, yes this team had missed the play-offs for a few years but there where still competative. That year though the Hawks finished near the bottom of the NHL and traded Chelios to the Redwings, of all the teams to trade him to the REDWINGS! That year was the hardest year to remain of Hawks fan after, it seemed the team had just given up.
I remember just absolutely hating Steve Paopst with a passion. Those were some dark times. When your #1 line is comprised of 3 young guys who literally were out of the NHL before the age of 30, you wonder how things turned around so quickly.
One of the reasons I find it so funny when people around here are just irrationally negative towards this team is looking back at those years. I just wonder what these same people would have been saying pre Toews/Kane.
