Chicago Blackhawks lead the NHL with 21 national TV appearances in 2016-17

The Hawks are still appointment viewing. Okay. So the Chicago Blackhawks had an early playoff exit this past season, and didn't finish as high in the Central as they maybe could have. But make no mistake about it - they're still the team that won three Stanley Cups in just six years. They're still essentially a modern day dynasty (teams just don't win back-to-back anymore; they haven't since the 1996-97 and 1997-98 Red Wings). And with a core firmly in place, headlined by guys like Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith, they're still easily one of the most popular teams in the league. Which means...

Jonathan Toews' adventures with commercials

When you're good, you've gotta do TV. Jonathan Toews is widely recognized as one of the best hockey players in the world. He's easily one of the most successful, too - and since becoming a household name, a lot of people want to use that name to their benefit. Enter: commercials. Enter: extremely awkward Jonathan Toews. Painting and acting on the set for a Canadian Tire commercial... I can't think of any other ways to completely shatter my comfort zone.

WATCH: Jonathan Toews on the Aubrey Marcus Podcast

It's an incredibly intellectual, insightful conversation. While the rest of us were gearing up for the NHL Draft, Jonathan Toews was gearing up for his first-ever podcast appearance. He joined Aubrey Marcus, CEO of Onnit, on his podcast for a deep, philosophical conversation on human consciousness. Of course, because it's Toews, there's a fair amount of talk as to how all of this ties in with athletics and being a professional athlete. There is some NSFW language, but it's not prevalent throughout. Toews busted out a quote fairly early on that stuck with me in watching this: "In all of our...

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...
