Even Jonathan Toews has thoughts about the Shea Weber/PK Subban trade

Everyone has an opinion, but Toews actually plays against these guys! The hockey world was rocked today. Taylor Hall was traded for Adam Larsson, Steven Stamkos decided to stay with the Tampa Bay Lightning at a discounted rate. But the biggest move of all might have been the Montreal Canadiens trading P.K. Subban for Shea Weber. Everyone has their thoughts on this. Absolutely everyone. And apparently, Jonathan Toews is no exception. Hey Webs good luck in Montreal thanks for leaving our division! #relief — Jonathan Toews (@JonathanToews) June 29, 2016 But before you (or he) breathe...

Jonathan Toews' summer of getting back in shape continues

I think he's fine... Jonathan Toews on social media has been a blast. And really, this summer I've been having the most fun with him complaining about being out of shape - especially because, you know, he really, really isn't. Case in point, as he continues to travel around this summer: A photo posted by Jonathan Toews (@jonathantoews) on Jun 23, 2016 at 11:25am PDT No, wait... I think I've got something better. A video of him working out, if you will: Pretty awesome to have the opportunity of working with amazing athletes like Chicago Blackwawk Captain, and 3x Stanley Cup...

2016 NHL Awards: Ryan Kesler finishes 3rd in Selke Trophy voting

At least he finished ahead of Jonathan Toews! The Selke Trophy was handed out on Wednesday night and Ryan Kesler wasn’t the winner. Kesler finished 3rd in voting for the Selke, which goes to the best defensive forward in hockey. Anze Kopitar took home the award while Patrice Bergeron finished a (somewhat) close 2nd. In the award preview I predicted Kesler would finish a distant 3rd in voting and that’s how it all played out. It’s worth noting that captain Ryan Getzlaf made a few voter’s ballots. Here are the final results: (Player | Team | Points | 1st | 2nd | 3rd | 4th |...

Jonathan Toews celebrates Father's Day

Bonus: little Toews! There are a couple of people to thank for Jonathan Toews, but at the very top of that list are his mom and dad. For one thing, he literally wouldn't exist without them; for another thing, they clearly raised him right. That's a ton of behind-the-scenes work over years and years and years we weren't ever going to be witness to, but they did a stand up job. So it only makes sense that, on Father's Day, Toews gives his dad the shoutout he deserves. And now that Toews is on social media, he can easily spread it to the masses! Happy Father's Day to the best coach,...

Jonathan Toews' off-season: keeping his brain in shape

We can (and, perhaps, should) treat this as a recommended reading list. Hot yoga and pilates may have conquered Jonathan Toews, but you know he's on top of things. For one thing, they're probably just temporary setbacks; for another thing, there's more to athletics than just the body. So while the Chicago Blackhawks' captain may be out of shape - and I'm going to keep going with this angle until he refutes it, which he has yet to do - you know his brain isn't. Since Toews joined Twitter, we've gotten to see a more thoughtful side of him. Since he joined Instagram, we've... gotten to...

2016 NHL Draft prospect profile: Alexander Nylander is one of the most skilled players available

Hockey runs deep in the Nylander family, and Alexander is no exception, bringing a ton of skill to the table. Drafting at ninth overall is a difficult position, particularly in this year’s draft. Once the top three is gone, the rankings start to jump around a lot more, making it difficult to predict who will go where. Alexander Nylander is one of those players who could go in almost any position. Ranked anywhere from sixth to 12th, the Mississauga Steelheads forward had a very impressive rookie year in the OHL, and is now expected by most to be a top-10 pick like his brother William....

Look at how out of shape Jonathan Toews is

We have video proof now! If there's one thing we've learned this off-season, it's that Jonathan Toews is out of shape. Hot yoga conquered him. Pilates was up there as well. Most of his off-season Twitter has been devoted to workouts and nutrition - and the expectation of himself to be better. That's pretty classic Toews. But now, we have video proof that Toews is out of shape. Observe: Jonathan Toews EVO UltraFit Management Athlete getting his EVO check up in the EVO UltraFit facility. Performing at the top levels in any aspect isn't a skill it's a lifestyle. Simply because your...

Jonathan Toews joins Instagram

He's spending his off-season wisely. First, everybody loved Jonathan Toews. Then, he joined Twitter, and everyone loved him even more. It's a long off-season without the Blackhawks, after all, and that means quite some time without Toews. So it's great he's joining social media so even if we can't see him on the ice, he's still chatting it up with his fans, in a way - plus showing a lot of personality! And now, he's added another online outlet: Instagram. First post on Instagram and first night in London with my amazing travel companion. A photo posted by Jonathan Toews...

Artem Anisimov bought a Lincoln Park mansion

No, not Jonathan Toews'. A different one. While one of the Chicago Blackhawks doesn't feel the need for a mansion in Lincoln Park, another one, evidently, does. Around the time reports came out about Jonathan Toews selling the mansion he bought - downsizing, because even he doesn't need that much room - Artem Anisimov was busy buying his own place in the area. Toews' place was a 6,400-square-foot, five-bedroom mansion; Anisimov's new digs are 6,650-square-feet with six bedrooms, according to the Chicago Tribune. The Hawks did sign Anisimov to a five-year, $22.75 million deal when they got...
