Two great years: 2008- 2010
The 2008 season saw the Blackhawks undergo a major transformation, beginning with the front office. In 2007, Bill Wirtz, the longtime owner of the Blackhawks, passed away after a brief battle with cancer. The team was left to his son, Rocky, who drastically changed the team for the better. Not only did Rocky up the marketing anti of the team, but he also made some important roster changes, adding two young players, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, to the lineup. By the time the 2008-2009 season rolled around, travelers in Chicago exotic rental cars were seeing a major difference in the Blackhawks on-ice abilities. Not only did the team finish second in their division that season, but they also played in the Winter Classic game at Wrigley Field, prior to advancing all the way to the Stanley Cup Final. While the team lost the cup that year to the Detroit Red Wings, they were able to bounce back and win the championship in the 2009-2010 season, defeating the Philadelphia Flyers.
