Some may think the Blackhawks' turnaround happened during the 2007-2008 season, but they would be very wrong.
Many think that started when Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews joined the Hawks, but it actually started in 2002.
During the 2002 draft the Hawks drafted two members of their 2010 Stanley Cup team. In 2003 they added another two members, plus current goaltender Corey Crawford. Between the 2004 and 2007 drafts, they added six more members of the championship team as well as several other players who have played for the Hawks.
Do you see a trend here?
The Hawks have a great record of drafting and developing talent. Here is a list of the guys who might be helping the Hawks for years to come.
