The Chicago White Sox were winning ugly in 1983. Thirty years later, their Windy City hockey counterparts -- the Chicago Blackhawks -- are winning smugly. Not a conceited or arrogant kind of smugly, but rather with self-assurance and confidence from a team that genuinely feels it will not be denied each time it steps on the ice. No matter what their opponents throw at them, the Blackhawks continue to be the best team in the NHL in this lockout-shortened season -- by far.
