For years, they’ve been the sorry Blackhawks. On Monday, the Hawks were simply sorry as president Bill Wirtz apologized to Chicago hockey fans for missing the entire 2004-05 NHL season due to the owners’ lockout. “To the fans of Chicago, I want to apologize both for the owners and the players for the last season,” Wirtz said. The Hawks realize it’s not going to be easy winning back their fans. Certainly the best way to do it would be to put a contending and entertaining team on the ice for the first time in almost a decade. Cutting ticket prices wouldn’t hurt either, which is exactly what the Hawks plan to do for certain seats. The Hawks announced all full season-ticket holders would receive a 10 percent discount for the 2005-06 season. Additionally, a total of 2,672 seats in the 300 level of the United Center will be priced at $10.
