From Quiz The Wirtz Blackhawks

Answer: 1972

One of the first in a long line of talented players who left Chicago in a bitter dispute over money. He went on to score over 300 regular season goals after his departure. His son, a future Hall of Famer, Brett, expressed desire to play for the Hawks, but was never tendered a serious offer as a free agent. An example of the selfish grudges Bill Wirtz holds, and how it is the fans who suffer. The WHA existed from 1972-1979.

17. Who last coached the Blackhawks in 1997?

Answer: Craig Hartsburg

From Quiz The Wirtz Blackhawks

Answer: Bobby Orr

Bobby played for 20 games in the 1976-77 season and 6 games in 78-79. His knees where shot by then. It was speuclated that Wirtz signed Orr away from Boston as revenge for getting snookered in the Esposito deal years earlier. Coffey was a worthless addition prior 1998-99 season, he moved on to two teams later. Housley was still playing for the Blackhawks at the start of the 2000ss and lead Hawks defensemen in scoring for the 2001-02 season.

19. Who did the Hawks receive in exchange (in addition to draft picks) for Chris Chelios?

From Quiz The Wirtz Blackhawks

Answer: Anders Ericksson

Ericksson was acquired and spent a forgetful season and a half with the Hawks, until he was traded for Spacek. Spacek spent about the same amount of time with the Hawks until traded for Lyle Odelein at the trade deadline last year. Ulfie was part of the package the Hawks acquired for Belfour, from the Sharks. Daze was a draft pick the Hawks acquired in the Hasek deal with Buffalo. These are all great examples of the Hawks trading away marquee players for those who are not.

20. Whose #18 hangs in the rafters of the United Center?

From Quiz The Wirtz Blackhawks

Answer: Denis Savard

Savoir Faire and his patented Spin-o-Rama move retired after the 1997 season. He was honored with his own night durring the 1998 season, and watched as his sweater was raised. He won one Stanley Cup in his career, and of course it was with a team other than the Blackhawks. He was a member of the Patrick Roy lead Montreal Canadians of 1993. A fine example of a world class player who had to find glory away from the Hawks. Savard was traded for Chelios by Mike Keenan in 1990. Savard was then later reaquired from the Lightning for a 5 round draft choice in 1995.
