07:31 AM ET 09.30 | Chairman Rocky Wirtz came up with a serious set of individual rewards for the Blackhawks winning the NHL's ultimate team trophy. In a private ceremony Sunday, Hawks players received rings commemorating their 2013 Cup win that had a background setting of 14-carat white goal, weighed in at 93.0 grams and included 260 diamonds and gemstones totaling approximately 14.68 carats. In 2010, the Hawks received rings valued at about $30,000 that were 14-carat white gold, weighed 91.0 grams with 404 diamonds and gemstones totaling approximately 8 carats. Like '10, the 2013 version has engraving on the inside of each player's ring that has the NHL logo and those of the four teams the Hawks dispatched in the playoffs and the series scores. Hawks captain Jonathan Toews had input on the design of the rings with jeweler Jostens.

Well "Rocky" Wirtz has to do something with all that extra money he's getting this year with the lowered cap. I'm sure that's just written off as a business expense.

Oh and by the way. Ticket prices are going up.

Can't recall the last time I saw a championship ring that I thought looked good.

Is that because they weren't handing out rings in 67 :-)

Big and gaudy usually, but it's for the trophy room, some players have never figured it out. Especially a certain SB winner that let Putin 'see' his ring.

Cruel Whale. Cheer up Danny. The only rings the Caps have are around the bathtub at home. Sob. (On the other hand, we've only been waiting since 1974)!

Just did a quick little comparison, and DC & T.O. are very, very similar sports-wise.

LOL !!!! As a general rule a man should never own, or wear a ring worth more bucks than the one on his Wife"s finger.

Sigh.If anyone needs me, i'll be praying to the ghost of Harold Ballard to finally lift his twisted curse on this franchise until tomorrow night.
