Since The Cup - The 1970s

Frustrated by the Wirtz family's refusal to meet his salary demand, Bobby Hull left the Hawks after the 1971-72 season for the new World Hockey Association's Winnipeg Jets,. The Hawks, with star goaltender Tony Esposito, reached the Stanley Cup finals the next year and won seven division titles in the decade. But without Hull, the Hawks lost 16 straight playoff games.
