Much has been made of our struggles in this year of strife. We watched Chicago run away with the division title, Western Conference top seed and, by virtue of Bestern/Leastern Conference Logic, the President’s Trophy. But we dared not deem this a year to “rebuild.” This is a year to re-arm. Re-load our arsenal. Led by Captain Z and Pavel the Magician, an unrelenting, undying fight has been instilled in the core of our youth. Now it is time to test that resolve in the ultimate rite of passage, best of seven (or race to four, as Babs would say) against the Stanley Cup favourite Chicago Blackhawks.
And for those of you who are fans of theatre, what better opportunity to see the Hawks’ stars than in their newest playbill: Chicago on Ice!
