Chicago Blackhawks’ are confident they’ll be able to re-sign Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews


According to CSN Chicago, the Chicago Blackhawks’ are confident they’ll be able to re-sign star players Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews when the time comes.

The contracts of Toews and Kane aren’t up until the summer of 2015, but it could turn into a topic of discussion in the future with the teams recent long-term deals. Just a couple days ago, the Blackhawks signed goalie Corey Crawford to a six year contract extension.

The team now has around $36.6 million committed to just seven players in 2015-2016.

“Those two players put the Blackhawks back on the map, they’re up in a couple years, and whatever the numbers are, we’ll figure out the details. The notion that money we’re spending now will affect our ability to keep both Jonathan and Kane, it’s a non-issue.” Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman told CSN Chicago.

Signing both Kane and Toews could put them in a situation where they have very little money to spend elsewhere. They will need depth if they want to continue to compete for the Stanley Cup.
