Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks are on a 5 game winning streak, and the question that has to be asked, Is Jonathan Toews back?

If you ask me what was wrong with Jonathan Toews last season, my reply would be that Joel Quenneville couldn’t settle on who to play along side Toews and Marian Hossa.  Then when the Hawks did trade for Andrew Ladd they never really got any chemistry going, and in the end it was a Brent Seabrook shot that rang against both posts that got the Blackhawks eliminated in the opening round of the playoffs.

To start the season, it was more of the same for Toews and linemates with Joel Quenneville even throwing him back with Patrick Kane for a few game with little success.

Jonathan Toews game seemed to be taking shape a few weeks ago, and now that he has what seems like permanent linemates in Nick Schmaltz and Richard Panik, and it has Toews game looking  really rock solid again.

The Hawks are always a better team when the Captain is producing points and leading the team to more wins than losses.  The fact that the kids are starting to come into their own and Toews is finding his game makes one think that this team can make another long run this Spring.  Am I drinking the Kool-Aid or do you feel the same way?
