In an interview with a Winnipeg radio station, Jonathan Toews said he's confident that the off-season story surrounding Patrick Kane will sort itself out.

"Yeah, you just have to have confidence that things like that will resolve themselves over time and for the time being, you stay together as a team, you support your teammate or teammates who are maybe going through a rough patch," said Toews. "Eventually you deal with it internally, you stay together as a team and you’re confident as individuals and as a group. Everyone kind of stays together and at the end of the day, we always say to each other, what is said and done in the locker room is the only thing that matters."

After a tumultuous off-season, Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman is exalting the virtues of change.

Bowman told NHL.com " I think we're really going to fall in love with some of these guys." Few, if any, teams have seen the sort of dramatic changes the defending champions experienced this summer, so they'll need to see the likes of Marko Dano contribute in 2015-16.

Apparently the trade that sent Marian Hossa to the Atlanta Thrashers and Dany Heatley to the Ottawa Senators happened 10 years ago today.

It's remarkable how much has changed for the two wingers since then. Heatley enjoyed a few high-end seasons with Ottawa before his game fell apart, and he now is out of the NHL. Hossa is currently a three-time Stanley Cup champion with huge respect around the league.

Agitating forward Daniel Carcillo admits that he isn't sure if he'll play in the NHL again as a 30-year-old UFA.

"If I told you that I've already made a decision 100 percent to not play I'd be lying," Carcillo said to the Chicago Tribune. "But every year, especially the last couple, I've definitely thought about it. And then when you have a son it kind of changes things because being away that long with that travel schedule is just not conducive to being the father I want to be. I want to be here and I want to see things."

Chicago has signed Nolan Valleau to a two-year contract.

He contributed two goals and 19 points in 39 games with Bowling Green State University during his freshman campaign in 2014-15. The undrafted defenseman was named to the WCHA All-Rookie team and the Blackhawks clearly saw enough to sign the 22-year-old to a pro contract.

Updating an earlier item, Phillip Danault is projected to be sidelined for about four months.

Marcus Kruger would prefer to already have a new contract done, but he isn't worried about it yet.

"Right now I just try to focus on getting in the best shape I can be in a month from now. That's all I can do," said the restricted free agent. "Then, I think everything else will sort out. I love playing hockey. I know I'm going to do that. We will see what happens, but I'm not too worried about it." His preference is to receive a long-term deal, but he is willing to take a shorter contract because of Chicago's lack of cap space.

Phillip Danault underwent hip surgery on Monday morning.

He is expected to miss at least three months, but Chicago hasn't announced the procedure yet. Danault notched 13 goals and 25 assists in 70 games with AHL Rockford last season and he made two appearances in the NHL with the Blackhawks. He was the 26th overall pick in the 2011 draft, but probably would've started the 2015-16 campaign in the minors.
