Hawks storyline (No. 5): More Kane, Toews

ESPNChicago.com's Scott Powers counts down the days to the opening of Blackhawks training camp on Friday with a look at 20 storylines facing the team this season. The Chicago Blackhawks aren't going to pay Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews a combined $168 million in their next contracts for what they have already accomplished. Their individual successes -- the two Stanley Cups and being the faces of the organization -- certainly added to their price tag.

Patrick Kane never worried about contract

We Love Jonathan Toews (And Meatball Dude!) Brent Seabrook, Not So Much.

I mean, I don't really hate Seabrook. I just couldn't think of anyone else on the Blackhawks to dislike. Guy We Love: Jonathan Toews Toews is the quite good captain of the quite good Chicago Blackhawks. With two Stanley Cup victories, two Olympic gold medals, a Selke trophy, a Conn Smythe trophy and whatever award the best forward at the 2010 Olympic Winter games receives, it's somewhat mind blowing when you realize this man-child is only 26. Toews may not provide the point-per-game numbers of teammate and cab driver aficionado Patrick Kane, but he's got that Patrice Bergeron mojo going on...
