    Blackhawks take out full-page Globe ad to thank Bruins, City of Boston

    http://www.boston.com/news/source/2013/06/stanley_cup_champion_chicago_blackhawks_take_our_fill-page_g.html

    In a full-page ad appearing in Friday's edition of The Boston Globe, the Chicago Blackhawks shared an open letter to the people of Boston and the Boston Bruins - the team they defeated to win the Stanley Cup.

    The letter, signed by Rocky Wirtz, chairman of the Wirtz Corporation, and John McDonough, president and CEO of the Blackhawks, thanked Boston for what happened on and off the ice during the recent Stanley Cup Final. In particular the letter thanked the citizens of Boston for the respect and good sportsmanship they showed to visitors from Chicago during the series.

    I never developed any hate for them through the series.  They played straight up, no crying to the refs.  Not one troll on the forum from Chicago.  Class act all the way through.

    Wow - very classy, very much appreciated. As Bad Hab said...I never grew to hate the Blackhawks in the slightest. It was just a matchup of the two best, toughest teams this year and I enjoyed watching. Congrats Chicago on your Cup win!

    Never disliked the Blackhawks. One of those teams even as a kid I liked.  Really classy move.

    Very classy, I wonder if there had been a build up of hatred during the series if it would have helped the Bruins or hurt them?

    Great move by Wurtz and the Blackhawks. Having said that I want Chicago in another SCF in the next few years.

    You don't see this very often. What a show of class by their organization. And as others have pointed out, their team played the game the way it is supposed to be played.

    One of the best SCF series I can remember. And I agree with you SAN.....would love to see the B's back against them in another SCF soon.

    Thank you, Rocky Wirtz. You are a friend.

    A favour must always be returned to a friend.

    We will have a letter ready for you sometime around June 15, 2014.

    I've always liked the Hawks and had no animosity towards them during the series, just respect. This shows me that respect was well deserved. A very classy organizaqtion.

    As bitter as I still am about the way we lost the cup in game 6, have to admit it was a very classy gesture on the part of the Hawks. I look forward to a rematch between 2 proud franchises !

    Well to be fair, that wasn't the organization - it was the city's crap tabloid. It'd be like blaming the Knicks for something the Daily News wrote.

    Hey Red...Has there been any talk in Vancouver, about the class Boston and their fans showed after the loss, compared to their city's meltdown?

    Or did the professionalism both sides showed throughout the Finals, just go over their heads?

    A bit of talk this morning about the Hawks' class with that ad. Otherwise, all I heard on that topic was during the series about how dirty and classless and scummy the Bruins were.

    So yeah, it went over their heads

    Nice gesture by a class organization.

    I tired to develop a hate for them, just couldnt.

    I was getting an earful from fans in VAN and PIT especially (obviously). Kept calling Chara a goon and whatnot. It never ceases to amaze me how blind fans get sometimes.

    Didn't hear much from CHI fans in terms of any animosity towards the Bs. Maybe every once in a  while on a live chat or something, but what else do you expect for real-time reactions such as chats and twitter? Classy organization and great fans.

    The Blackhawk organization should be commended for this display of sportsmanship.
