The Chicago Blackhawks Are The Worst Team In The NHL

Being of stout mind and spirit, (and a native of the Detroit area/Michigan in general), we’ve all come to know and love that the Red Wings are, arguably, the best team in the NHL. Coming up tomorrow is the start of their Semi-final series against the Chicago Blackhawks. With so much hype surrounding the performance they had in the regular season, no one’s taken a minute to really pick apart and digest the team as a whole, which really, isn’t as great as everyone makes them out to be. Let’s take a look at five of the reasons why the ‘Hawks are the WORST team in the NHL.

Fluke streaks and fortuitous luck make not a great team. You need long-term consistency, a plethora of memorable legends and tales of success, and you need wide, devout base of fans to back you the entire way. Such is the story of the Red Wings, who have always had a rabid fan-base, even outshining and out-cheering teams in their own arenas, still to this day. Fans that hop on and off the wagon when their team is playing well or badly, respectively, are not supporting their team. They’re supporting their own selfish egos by giving themselves something to talk about and feel good about. But once the success fades, so do the faces.

On that note, with the 2nd round starting tomorrow night, I leave you with a resounding LET’S GO RED WINGS!

  1. Blackhawks fans have been “Buckeyed”. You get beat down for years and years, and now that you’re good, everyone else sucks. Typical classless fan mentality. No respect for the rivalry and no respect for the other team.

  2. I understand hating on the team you are playing, but seriously…terrible article. 4 10+ goal scorers? Wings have 5. Hossa left because we decided to sign Franzen instead, which was an awful choice IMO. Babcock won the cup in his 3rd season with Detroit. You can say that it isn’t supposed to be taken seriously, but that doesn’t excuse a poorly written article.

  3. The fact that you are too stubborn to realize that the Hawks will win the series makes me feel bad for all the red wings hopefull. All you can do is hope that your sieve doesn’t allow too many goals.

  4. I’ve been to tons of Wings games as a child, & plenty of Hawks games. I have 3 Red Wings Jerseys (Kronwall, Yzerman, Rafalski) & 5 Hawks (Roenick, Toews, Kane, Browuer, Crawford) It’s ok to be both but I have to side with the hawks this year.

  5. My entire family lives in or near Detroit, they all love the wings/lions/tigers/Pistons/ect.. I grew up with the Wings but I always liked the Hawks. I live in green bay, bleed green & gold, love the Pistons & Absolutely love the Chicago Blackhawks.

  6. How did “hockeytown” like that 7-1 thrashing on Easter Sunday? Howard got scored on by two AHLers that game! Don’t talk if you can’t back it up, I look forward to seeing the Wings get knocked out in 5 & I’m a Wings/Hawks fan…

  7. A lot of in depth scientific analysis went into this article, it’s totally legit. I’ll respect the other guys after the playoffs are over.

  8. The worst attribute of the ‘Hawks is definitely their fanbase. The people of Chicago and the surrounding area are the most pretentious, pompous, sad little beings that have ever lived.

  9. This article is pointless. I appreciate the attempt at making the Blackhawks look bad, but this article does the opposite. First of all, Hossa finally won a cup with the Blackhawks, and since when is keeping the core of your team together a bad thing? The Blackhawks suck, but not for the reasons listed in this article. Go Wings.

  10. I remember back when I was a young’n during the Wings/Avs rivalry, guys used to get the snot beat out of them just for WALKING AROUND in an Avs jersey. This is a mild rivalry compared to that.

  11. It seems that everyone who knows more than a little about hockey is saying one of the Hawks’ strengths is the depth of their scoring. And anyone who can count knows the Blackhawks went 28  consecutive years, from 1969-70 to 1996-97, with playoff appearances. I can see why someone as classy as Marian Hossa would leave you after one year.

  12. Come on, nothing better than Eric Munson, Nate Cornejo, and gold glove center fielder Jose Macias. 8 dollar seats gets ya 2 hot dogs, 2 cokes and moving to a seat behind 3rd bag.

  13. You can say any team has bandwagon fans!! yes, even Detroit!! Remember when the Tigers would draw under 10,000 midweek when they were losing 100 games each year??
