Put The Chicago Blackhawks Dynasty Talk On Hold

As much fun as Blackhawks president John McDonough has had seeing his organization win three Stanley Cups in the past six years, there’s still a standard the team has yet to reach in his mind.

Dynasty status.

“I would probably characterize this as a good run,” McDonough said in an interview on 670 The Score on Friday morning. “I think it’s a bit of a stretch to say ‘dynasty.’ You look at the Detroit Red Wings, the fact that they’ve made the playoffs … 24 years in a row, that’s that consistent excellence that we’re striving for. It’s been a lot of fun (for us). Not one minute through all of these Stanley Cup playoffs — every game is decided by one goal, no lead is safe. We learned that in the Anaheim game where they scored three goals in 37 seconds. But at the end, it’s been very rewarding.”

Chicago’s success comes with a cost, as it must often part with top-notch talent in a league with a hard salary cap.
