As the realization sets in that the Blackhawks will miss the playoffs for the first time in 10 years, have the Blackhawks quit?

Mark Lazerus of the Sun-Times and Tracey Myers discuss that, discuss players around the league that big-brawler Jonathan Toews hates, get into the team’s alarming defensive decline, and answer a litany of listener questions about the Blackhawks, the future, and where to eat on the road.
