from Bryan Gruley of the Wall Street Journal,
As the NHL season gets underway, Mr. McDonough discussed his plan to get the Blackhawks back on top.
WSJ: Do you have a benchmark in mind? The Detroit Red Wings?
Mr. McDonough: I really don’t want to talk about other elite franchises. At the end of last season, when we missed the playoffs by three points, we gathered the hockey team and the front office together over a luncheon. The message I sent was, we are no longer going to have a hockey operation and a business operation. There is going to be one Chicago Blackhawks. There is going to be a certain type of player that is going to play.
