Jonathan Toews talks about his and Patrick Kane’s contract extensions

From the Chicago Sun-Times' Mark Lazerus, presented without comment:

Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane are going to sign massive contract extensions this summer, possibly as early as July 1. That’s basically a given. It’s also highly likely they’ll do so on the same day, as they did in 2009.

“We’ve been kind of going hand-in-hand almost our entire careers,” Toews said Monday. “When we came in as rookies, and we’ve just been included in the same discussion for a lot of things, namely our second contract, and probably this time again. The chances of that are good. But at the end of the day, he’s got his own needs and his own family, and you have to respect that, as well.”

Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman told the Sun-Times earlier this month that he planned to have the deals done by July 1, the first day the two stars and franchise cornerstones are eligible to sign them. Toews didn’t want to put a timetable on it, saying, “We’re in discussions right now, but as far as I know, nothing is concrete.” Both Toews and Kane are represented by agent Pat Brisson.
