Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Kane Is Tops

NASHVILLE, TN - APRIL 20: Patrick Kane
NASHVILLE, TN - APRIL 20: Patrick Kane /

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Well another NHL Network list has come out, and I think it’s safe to say that all Blackhawk fans like this list a whole lot more than the goalie list. 

The NHL Network List of Top wingers came out, and Chicago Blackhawks All-Star Winger Patrick Kane was named the top winger in all of the NHL which I of course am in total agreement.

If you want to see the entire Top 20 list which does include recently traded Artemi Panarin, Here is the tweet.

The Chicago Blackhawks will need huge years from both Kane and Jonathan Toews this year if the Chicago Blackhawks will be competing for a Stanley Cup.  It’s nice seeing Kane get credit as one of the top weapons in the NHL right now after seasons of 106 and 89.

Granted, critics will say that it will be a struggle for Kane to get back to those career high kind of totals without Panarin, but he will have most likely have his old pal  Patrick Sharp on his other wing this year so who really knows what to expect from Kane this year.  It will be good as always, but how really good will it be this year?

Here are some morning links to start your work week!
