Blackhawks: steps Rocky Wirtz needs to take in 2020-2021
The Chicago Blackhawks have had Chelsea Dagger as their goal song since the 2008-09 season, and since then that song has haunted teams across the league.
The Chicago Blackhawks seem to be entering a new era for the team. Whether it’s McDonough’s shot or the fact that we haven’t been in the playoffs for five seasons, but things definitely seem to be changing for the Blackhawks.
The days of Toews and Kane will end sooner or later. Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook have their best days with the Blackhawks behind them, and all of this brings the team to a new era.
Perhaps the best way to start fresh is to introduce a new goal song for the team and the fans to rally. Your goal song is the first thing that comes to mind when a goal is scored or a team wins a game, the Blackhawks might as well introduce something new to show that it’s not the same Blackhawks team from the 2010s.
I loved watching the Blackhawks win three Stanley Cups in six seasons, and I loved watching the team score countless goals during that time. I have cheered and cheered at many United Center goal celebrations in the past 12 years, but I think keeping Chelsea Dagger as the Blackhawks’ goal song for the next few seasons is going to ruin it.
Some teams have already made things happen with goal songs. Some have given each player their own song when they score a goal. Think of this as a Major League Baseball walk-up song, I think if the Blackhawks wanted to give each player their own song that would make things rather interesting and fun for fans looking for their favorite player.
While I know that a goal song might not be at the top of the list at the moment, I think it’s a fun thing to think about and could be something to bridge the gap between the 2020 and 2021 seasons. .
