And he's always the Hawks most dangerous threat in the offensive zone. Toews, Hossa, Sharp, and especially 2010 playoff Byfuglien have all hugely benefitted from playing with someone as gifted at manipulating opposing defenses and making plays as Patrick Kane.

It's usually forgotten that at the start of last season, Toews was having a hard time scoring without Kane on his wing, while Kane (as a center) and Hossa were lighting the lamp almost every time they touched the puck.
