For the first time in 10 years, the Blackhawks are uninteresting — and dare I writeirrelevant.

After two consecutive first-round exits, the Hawks are missing the playoffs for the first time in nearly a decade.

Fans, who were spoiled with three Stanley Cups in six years, feel drained by the Hawks’ disappointing season. They didn’t realize how good they had it at the height of the team’s glory.

So in anattempt to make something fun out of a season that has been an emotional rollercoaster, let’s pretend Hollywood would pick up the rights to produce a movie about the Hawks and how they went from the dark ages to a beautiful dynasty.

Who would play the players and team personnel?
