Things couldn't have gone much better for the Chicago Blackhawks in 2013. They came away with at least a point in their first 24 contests—an NHL record—and ran away with the Presidents' Trophy by the halfway mark of the truncated year.

Chicago won the usually-tough Central Division by 17 points, the Western Conference by 11 and would go into the playoffs as one of the more heavily favored teams.

There they managed to defeat the Detroit Red Wings one last time despite falling behind 3-1 in the series and would eventually go on to win the Stanley Cup.

Along the way, Patrick Kane showed maturity as a player, Corey Crawford developed into a top-notch goaltender and Jonathan Toews won his first Selke Trophy as the best defensive-forward in the NHL.

What's left to do for the 'Hawks to do in 2013-14 except try to do it all over again?
