Reason Three: Another year with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane

We already spelled out why Patrick Kane could very well have a career year a few days ago, and the same could be true for Jonathan Toews if he continues where he left off in the postseason. Toews and Kane’s number of years in Chicago is limited at this point, so we have to enjoy every chance they get to be with this team.

Watching Kane compete as one of the top forwards in the league is something that all Blackhawks can get behind, and the team not playing this year was not going to help him as it would have just been time wasted for his career point totals.

Toews and Kane have been in the league for a long time now, and it is hard to imagine they are no longer the young guys on this team. Now they are the veterans with the knowledge that could prove beneficial to some of the young guys around.

I hope Chicago re-signs Toews and Kane both after their contracts in three seasons, but if they do decide to go elsewhere, it would be nice to know the ‘Hawks got everything they could out of their stars. That would not have happened with no hockey season in 2021.

What are you most excited about when it comes to the new season of hockey? Personally, I am a huge fan of these new divisions. Watching the Blackhawks play games no later than eight at night thanks to the eastern time zone teams during the regular season is going to be amazing. Here is to hockey to come soon in the coming month!
