Jonathan Toews has agreed to an eight-year, $84 million contract extension.
Patrick Kane signed an identical contract. Kane and Toews new cap hits of $10.5 million annually don't take effect until the 2015-16 campaign, but currently they're projected to be the two highest in the league. Toews fantasy value in standard leagues will always be a step below his actual worth as his offensive contributions are only a portion of what he brings to the table. He's a superb two-way center and a great team leader. Jul 9 - 1:06 PM

Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane have discussed signing extensions together on July 1 like they did when they agreed to identical five-year, $31.5 million contracts during the 2009-10 campaign.

"We're in discussions right now, but as far as I know nothing is concrete," Toews said. "We'll see where it continues to go. Stan probably has a lot on his docket as the manager of our team so he's trying to get things done. Kaner and I will take it slow and make the right decision." Toews and Kane have one season left on their respective deals, but all signs point to them signing long-term extensions in short order with the Blackhawks.

Chicago is hoping that Jonathan Toews will re-sign on July 1, which is the earliest possible date he can sign an extension.

Although there's little doubt Toews will sign, the timing matters because Chicago wants to know how much cap space it will have moving forward. How much Toews and Patrick Kane, who they would also like to ink on July 1, end up demanding will influence the rest of their offseason plans.

Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman's highest priority this offseason will be re-signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane.

Toews and Kane's contracts run through 2014-15, but Bowman would understandably rather avoid a scenario where questions about their future persist into the season. "There's no doubting the importance of those two players. The direction this franchise has taken has really been in tandem with those two players," Bowman said. "When Patrick and Jonathan came on to the scene, it really breathed life into our franchise and into our team. They've played a huge part in this." Ultimately, they should get both players signed. The bigger question is at what price and how much the raise Kane and Toews will get will impact their ability to build around them.

As good as this campaign was for the Blackhawks, Jonathan Toews expects better in 2014-15.

"People forget pretty quick about the team that came up short. We never want to be that team. You can learn something from it but right now we're not going to accept that or think about that," Toews said. "It's tough. You never want to lose. When you get the chance to win a Cup and then win another one, you see how great it feels and how amazing it is to be a part of a group like that that gives everything to get the result you want, especially when the city of Chicago rallies around you. To come up short, it's not fun, especially knowing what we're missing out on." Before Chicago has a chance to compete for the Stanley Cup again, the Blackhawks will likely begin their contract negotiations with Toews. His current deal won't expire until the summer of 2015, but Chicago would probably prefer to have the matter settled before the 2014-15 campaign even begins. Toews is in line for a big payday, but how much of a hometown discount he's willing to give Chicago will ha

The Chicago Blackhawks can start negotiating long-term contracts for potential unrestricted free agents Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane on July 1.

Both players have one year left on their respective deals. Chicago GM Stan Bowman expects to get his cornerstone forwards locked up and then the Blackhawks have the depth in their system to be contenders for a long time. "Top to bottom, we've got a lot of talent. I think we've got more character than anything," said Toews. "I could go on and on about that all day. Tough way to go down. It just goes to show how tough it is to win a Stanley Cup, let alone one time, but twice and twice in a row. It's pretty amazing to think what this team has accomplished and again, there's no satisfaction at all for one minute. I think that's the only reason we came this far."

Jonathan Toews scored his ninth goal of the playoffs in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to Los Angeles.

He gave the Blackhawks a 2-0 lead before the midway mark of the first period, but the Kings displayed their resiliency again and battled back to win the contest. "It's hard to admit to ourselves this season is over," Toews said shortly after Chicago was eliminated in the Western Conference Final. "It's not a good feeling especially given the circumstances, (with) how hard we fought (and) how badly we wanted to win this year." The Blackhawks captain ended the postseason with a five-game point streak (three goals, three assists). He registered 17 points in 19 matches.

It looks like the Chicago Blackhawks won't shake up their top line ahead of Game 5.

That means Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane are likely to stay together. The line will be rounded out by Bryan Bickell. The trio wasn't anything special in Game 4, but obviously Kane and Toews have the potential to dominate when they're playing together. Chicago will need a strong performance out of them in Game 5 as they look to avoid elimination.

Jonathan Toews feels Chicago's 5-2 loss to Los Angeles on Monday can't be blamed on a lack of effort.

Chicago was down 3-0 by the end of the first period and Los Angeles scored a fourth goal in the second period before the Blackhawks finally got on the board. "The guys played really well at times," Toews said. "We had them in their zone. I think when you give up three goals in a period, especially the first period, to a team like that, it gives them energy, gives them confidence in their own building. So we know we can’t do that." Los Angeles now has a 3-1 series lead, so the Blackhawks are almost out of chances to turn this series around.

Jonathan Toews is trying to rally the Blackhawks after they dropped their second straight game.

With their 4-3 loss on Saturday, the Blackhawks are now down 2-1 to Los Angeles in the Western Conference Final. "We know we can find ourselves out of this tough situation," Toews said. "It's not ideal, it's not exactly what we wanted, to go down 2-1. We know what we have to do. We have our work cut out for us. Every game is a must-win. But now the motivation and the reason … is very clear. It's now or never." Chicago is trying to become the first team since Detroit in 1997 and 1998 to win the Stanley Cup in back-to-back years.

Jonathan Toews netted two goals but they weren't enough as the Blackhawks fell in Game 3 against the Kings 4-3 on Saturday night.

Toews was his typical excellent playoff self in this game, scoring his first goal of the game shorthanded early in the first and potting his second about eight minutes later. He now has eight goals and 13 points in the playoffs. Patrick Sharp scored with about five seconds left in the game for his third of the postseason. Nick Leddy and Marian Hossa each had assists and finished a team-high plus-two on the night. Patrick Kane and Johnny Oduya ended up with a minus-two rating.

Jonathan Toews is the "best two-way player in the National Hockey League," according to Kings coach Darryl Sutter.

It's not unusual for the rival coach to pump up his opponents' players during a playoff series, either out of respect or an effort to portray his team as the underdogs. Nevertheless, it's interesting that Sutter would make such a statement when his best forward, Anze Kopitar, is a finalist along with Toews for the Selke Trophy, which honors the forward who demonstrates the most skill defensively. Kesler previously won the award in 2011 while Toews took it in 2013.

Jonathan Toews registered his sixth goal of the postseason, as Chicago took Game 1 of the Western Conference Final by a score of 3-1 against Los Angeles.

He scored on a 3-on-1 rush late in the third period to put the Blackhawks up by two goals. He also had a goal disallowed during the second frame because of incidental contact with Kings goalie Jonathan Quick. Toews has amassed 11 points in 13 games for Chicago in 2014.

Jonathan Toews scored his league-leading fourth game-winning goal of the playoffs on Sunday night.

His third-period marker gave the Blackhawks a 2-1 win in Game 5 and a 3-2 series lead. He scored after the team reunited him with Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp. Toews didn't record a point in the team's previous two matches in Minnesota, but he has a point in each contest on home ice in the second round. He has five goals and 10 points in 11 2014 playoff games.

Jonathan Toews recorded his fourth goal of the postseason in Sunday's 4-1 victory against Minnesota.

He followed up on a breakaway by Marian Hossa to open the scoring in the first period. Toews extended his playoff scoring streak to six straight games in the process. The Blackhawks captain has nine points in eight matches during the 2014 postseason.
