Since taking control after his father passed away, owner Rocky Wirtz made sweeping changes to bring once alienated fans back into the fold. The first thing he did was put previously withheld home games on local television. He also spent money on young talent, building a team that won the Stanley Cup in 2010. These stars, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, were among the top 10 selling jerseys in the league last year. The team has capped its season ticket holders at 14,000 and boasts a 10,000 person waiting list.
