For every Chicago sports team not named the Chicago Cubs, 2016 was a major let down. The Bulls missed the postseason for the first time in eight years, the White Sox continued to do whatever it is the White Sox do and, despite looking like they could repeat as Stanley Cup champions, the Blackhawks were bounced in the first round of the playoffs by the St. Louis Blues.
