One thing to keep in mind is the genius of McDonough and his marketing power. We've seen his ability to market already, and Kane and Toews are easily marketable stars that can make a lot of money in endorsement deals. I'd be willing to argue that there are only 4-5 teams that could even rival the hawks in potential big money sponsorship deals. Simply put Kane and Toews would have to receive a huge deal from a smaller market team to offset the potential endorsement deals.

If Kane and Toews really want to be Hawks they will find a way to make it work. You can even add Duncan into that fold as well. Tallon hasn't shown superb cap management yet, but I have a hard time seeing how he hasnt' planned for this already.

Than again the recent developments dont' bode all that well for that either.
