About one month ago reports surfaced that members of the 2013 Blackhawks cup winning team were ashamed with the organization due to it being the 10-year anniversary of the cup win, and them not showing any signs of recognition. The Athletic covered a story on players speaking out, which can be seen below:

It's like they just want to move on from us completely,» said one member of the 2013 team, who was granted anonymity because he didn't want to jeopardize his relationship with the club. «Doesn't make much sense to me.» Said an anonymous 2013 Blackhawks member. We're all hoping they do one,» Saad said with a shrug. «I know there's usually a 10-year reunion, and we're hoping they do it. Hopefully, whenever it is, we're not playing and I have a chance to come back and enjoy it. It's always nice to get back with guys you had success with.»

The team source also noted that Hossa's night already brought back many members of the 2013 team, including all seven three-time Cup winners — Hossa, Kane, Toews, Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, Patrick Sharp and Niklas Hjalmarsson — which made it a logistical challenge to find another date that worked for everyone. I don't know if it's been delayed or something like that,» Saad said. «But we're all still hoping.»

Well they got their wish, which may not be the proper amount of recognition, but the Chicago Blackhawks are set to air a special program on TV tomorrow in honor of a select group of players who brought home the 2013 Stanley Cup. The program will feature top moments from the entire playoff run, starting with the Game 1 OT win. It's hard to believe it's already been 10 years since the Blackhawks brought the Stanley Cup back to Chicago for the second time in four years.

This program will be a treat for Blackhawks fans who want to relive some of the best moments from that historic playoff run. 2013 Stanley Cup run was full of unforgettable moments. Blackhawks fans should tune in tomorrow to relive those moments and celebrate the players who made them happen.

Do you think a TV re-run is proper recognition for the Blackhawks' 10-year cup anniversary?
