What if they take Anze Kopitar instead of Jack Skille. End up with Kopitar, Toews, Kane.

5. What if we don't trade Esposito for nothing to the Bs and keep him?
4. What if Niemi doesn't make the Save on Jeff Carter 1 minute before Game 6 goes into overtime
3. What if Bobby Hull doesn't leave for the WHL?
2. What if Dollar Bill Wirtz keeps Roenick, Belfour and Chelios?
1. What if Kane does not tie Game 5 vs the Preds AND Hossa coming out of the box and scoring the OT GWG in the 1st round 2010

What if Belfour didn't let in Mario's shot from behind the red line to let them back in it when we were up big and in control in game 1 of the 92 SCF.

What if Sharp buries that back door shot on Luongo and the Hawks move on they get the Preds which may have just ended the run but you never know.

What if we don't win lottery and therefore, could not draft Patrick Kane in 2007 NHL Draft?

I was thinking that too, so here are three more:

- what if the $ Bill and Pully hadn't lasted for so long (more of a circumstance than an actual moment, but I'm going with it)
- what if we didn't draft Jonny
- what if Tony O didn't fan on Lemaire's shot in the 1971 SCF

What if Roenick is given a penalty shot in the 1996 Western Conference semis against Colorado.

I'll take 4 from here

- Esposito trade
- Tony O's whiff in Game 7
- Kane tying game 5 against Nashville
- Sharp's OT chance in Game 7 against Vancouver

And my favourite; what if Michal Handzus doesn't tear his ACL in October of '06? Do the Hawks make the playoffs that year (they looked good)? There's pretty much no chance they finish in the bottom five and even have a chance to win the Kane lottery, that's for sure.

Didn't Hull hit a post in Game 7 of the '71 Cup Final against Montreal that would've made it 3-0, and the Habs scored like 30 seconds later and take the game over? That's a pretty big what if, could've been inches from another Cup win.

Yeah he hit the crossbar and then the Habs took the puck and scored from center ice immediately after. I guess both of those moments would count (as would the Jim Pappin 'arms in the air' miss in the 3rd)

What if we could've drafted Evgeni Malkin instead of Cam Barker?

That's the one I think of most often. We probably would have been able to draft Kane if that had happened.

I'm just going to worry about recent history:

What if Erat didn't turn the puck over like an idiot in Game 5 vs. Nashville?
What if Sharp buried that shot in OT against Vancouver in the playoffs or Campoli didn't turn the puck over, like an idiot?
What if Chicago could have traded Campbell post-Cup win?
What if St.Louis had selected Toews 1st overall?
What if Bill Wirtz hadn't passed away until 2011?

Here's a few good ones, some have already been mentioned

1. What if the Hawks won game 7 in 71?
2. What if Hawks don't trade Espo to B's?
3. What if the Hawks made rumored Belfour+ for Lindros and kept Hasek?
4. What if Keith won the Conn Smythe/Hammer doesn't get OS from Sharks?
5. What if Dollar Bill was still alive and kicking?

Espo and Hasek trades are the biggest what ifs for me.

What if Dustin didn't bust out?
What if Dustin couldn't sweep?
What if Niemi only stopped 43?
What if :28 didn't make all the difference?
What if the Blackhawks could be bullied?

I recognized the last two.. but if those are all "History will be made" ones, you win.

Nothing in order but something recent

1. What is Raffi Torres didn't injure Hossa in 2012?
2. What if the Blackhawks didn't have salary cap issues in 2010.
3. What if we drafted Myers or Adam Karlsson in 2009 instead of Kyle Beach
4. What if Patrick Kane didn't pan out (Turris was the top player)
5. St. Louis took Toews
