Reply to "Blackhawks Owner and Illinois Liquor Distributor Died this morning"

Speaking purely as a hockey fan...and one who followed the Hawks growing up in the 60's/early 70's (Bruins and Blackhawk fan back then)...I find myself, like grossie, with mixed feelings.
Though Wirtz is considered one of the 'Builders' of the NHL...he also is, IMHO, responsible for the embarrassing futility of the franchise in recent times.

Sad to hear of his passing...but...
Here's to hoping the Blackhawks will return to it's once proud tradition of being consistantly competitive.
