Kukla's Korner Hockey

From the Chicago Tribune’s David Haugh:
As notions go, they come no more romantic in hockey than the one Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman has heard posed often in the two weeks since his team won the Stanley Cup.
According to the too-good-to-be-true scenario, team captain Jonathan Toews, 22 going on 50, selflessly would approach the GM about deferring the $1.3 million bonus Toews received for winning the Conn Smythe Trophy. That way, the salary cap-strapped Hawks could hold on to one of the good players whose salaries they otherwise would have to dump and keep the gang together.
Cue the sappy music. The gesture would have been better than when Paul Konerko gave Jerry Reinsdorf the ball after the 2005 World Series parade.
