Signing Of Three Key Blackhawks May Be Premature

from Len Ziehm of the Chicago Sun-Times,

It’s no secret the Blackhawks want to keep Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith around for a long time, but—despite recent published reports—none are signed for next year yet.

“I guess there’s a little bit of a rumor out there,” Kane said after practice on Tuesday, “but it’s between my agent and Stan (Hawks’ general manager Stan Bowman) and the Blackhawks’ organization.”

Because the NHL’s salary cap might drop for next season Bowman could be facing a big challenge in keeping the nucleus of his promising, young team together. Signing all three stars might be difficult, and the reports of an imminent signing of any of them could be premature.
