It is Thanksgiving in the United States of America which means that families and friends from around the country will come together and enjoy great food, company, and any other traditions that they may have. There is a lot to be thankful for if you are a Chicago Blackhawks fan.
Things are not going very well on the ice right now which is certainly not anything to be thankful for. The Hawks are one of the worst teams in the National Hockey League. However, there is a clear plan in place as the organization searches for the players that will lead them to glory again someday.
You might be reminded of the things that Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane have done for them. They are still with the team for now and they are the two that everyone who enjoys this team should be most thankful for this Thanksgiving.
Neither of them has played a single game of their Hall of Fame career with someone else. Together, they have won lots of individual awards as well as some incredible team awards. Both of them have gaudy statistics that will turn heads for a long time.
Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane have given the Chicago Blackhawks everything.
The Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup three times with them as the leaders of the team. They certainly had some help but they were the main catalysts each year. Both of them have won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the playoffs.
Individual awards like the Art Ross Trophy, Selke Trophy, Hart Trophy, and multiple All-Star appearances are on each of their resumes as well. This is the best duo in the history of the team and they will be remembered forever. Few Chicago athletes have ever made this level of impact.
Enjoy it this Thanksgiving. There is a good chance that both of them will be paying elsewhere when we reach this point of next season.
This Blackhawks team is headed in a new direction and they both deserve to win again in their careers. Be thankful for them now before it is too late as nobody knows what the future holds.
