The other day we all heard Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman re-assure fans that Toews and Kane “will be here forever.”
Amazing news. Let's just take a quick look at just how the two players will look in "forever" (for our purposes, we are quantifying forever to mean +/- 20 years).
With these more "seasoned" looks, it's pretty easy to imagine Toews giving pressers, and dropping bench-side F-bombs as a future coach; and Kane sitting on a sports panel for a large television network (or as a trainer on the Biggest Loser). And if I'm honest, I prefer aged Kane. He looks less like he'd spend hours eating cereal and playing Mario Kart (not that that's a bad thing. I want cereal now).
We'll see if those hours of Mario Kart will pay off. The Blackhawks' first game vs. the Washington Capitals is in 13 days.
