Toews, Kane and Keith
I have to congratulate the Blackhawk fans in signing Toews and Kane to 5 year extensions. On the other hand, I don't understand why teams don't learn from previous long-term contract failures like Dipietro and Yashin. Keith got a 13 year extension? I'm gonna bet that the Hawks buy him out in the future and incur an extremely lenghty salary cap penalty. The Islanders look stupid right now with an injury prone goaltender consuming large amounts of cap space. The Islanders also look stupid with Yashin still on the books, having not played the last two years. The Hawks are in salary cap hell already and the combination of these three signings put them up against the cap for ever going forward. They will be dumping players to make the cap annually.

On the other hand, with Toews and Kane, they'll be competitive for years to come. Better than the Leafs or Isles or Canes.
