With two Stanley Cup championships in four years, the Chicago Blackhawks are flirting with terms like "dynasty." But history tells us that the ultimate feat, repeating as a Cup champion, remains very much a long shot. Not since 1997-98, when Detroit went 2-for-2 in Cup wins, has a team been able to repeat. Still, there is much to like about this Blackhawks team's chances of cashing in again next June, starting with a core of skilled veterans still in their prime, including captain Jonathan Toews, playoff MVP Patrick Kane, underappreciated forward Patrick Sharp, Marian Hossa and defensive anchors Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook.
