The Two Stars

I had to put Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane together as one on this list. They are the Blackhawks superstars the same way Patrick Mahomes is the superstar of Kansas City. Mahomes might be the most well-known player in the NFL right now, well Toews and Kane were the most well-known hockey players while they were winning their Cups.

The sad thing is the fact that after Toews and Kane signed those long term contracts the product around them started to go down. With salary caps, it is hard to build a full team with one or two players taking up a large chunk of your salary. That might become an issue one day in Kansas City.

Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane signed their matching contracts on July 9th of 2014. For me, that was the biggest contract extension I have ever seen, until of course, I saw Mahomes’s contract.

What did you think of the players on our list? Do you think there are any other Blackhawks contracts that are missing from this list as blockbuster contracts that helped make the team better? I know Brent Seabrook‘s contract is massive, but at the same time, I can not put that contract on here because of how much he hurt the team following the contract and taking up the cap space.
