I've been saying for a while now that the Chicago Blackhawks are a scrappy bunch that doesn't play like a team that's supposed to have a down year entering a possible rebuild. We've cashed some nice tickets on the Blackhawks already this season and now they're becoming more valuable with them finishing games. The Detroit Red Wings don't string wins together and their lack of offense makes them hard to back most nights. Give me the Blackhawks and the cheap price.
