“I feel comfortable here right now. They want me to be a guy they can rely on in all situations. You always want to get better every day.” [Chicago Tribune]
“I want everything. I never once thought Chicago was out of range. Everybody else did.”
Judging by Joel Quenneville and Patrick Kane’s comments in the same story, the Hawks definitely haven’t overlooked the Ducks either, so the game tonight promises to be a fascinating one to watch. [CSN Chicago]
“The Blackhawks have two elite young forwards with contracts set to expire after the 2014-2015 campaign. If Rocky Wirtz had any doubt as to what it will cost to resign Kane and Toews, he now has a clearer picture.”
No one would be surprised to see the Hawks sign Kane and Toews to matching 8-year deals, likely in the $8.5-9 million range, but with their free agency not set to hit until 2015, there’s no reason to rush it now. [Fox Chicago]
