Too bad it will never happen, but theoretically for fun:

Alex Steen - Jon Toews - Mike Richards
Dustin Penner - Travis Zajac - Colin Wilson
Cody McLeod - Darren Helm - Jordin Tootoo
Frazer McLaren - Ryan White - Colton Orr
(Arron Asham, Cody Eakin, Scott Glennie)

Travis Hamonic - Duncan Keith
Ian White - Justin Falk
Cam Barker - Bryce Salvador
(Colby Robak, Dylan McIlrath)

James Reimer
Chet Pickard

Goalies and D are a little weak, but that would be one big mean tough team. haha maybe one day the NHL will change to only using players from your own area.
It's all pretty weak. I hope that never happens

Penner on your second line? Barf
Alex Steen a 1LW? Barf
Jordin Tootoo a 3rd liner? Barf
Pretty much all D below top 2? Barf
Goalies? Barf.

This could be a lottery team. Thank God this isn't realistic

On topic though? People who say Toews won't be coming here are pretty confident. However, we don't know what will happen with the Jets or Blackhawks in the next few years. Maybe Jonathan wins another cup there and feels like he's done all he can there. Maybe the Jets become a legit contender. Perhaps he wants to be back closer to home and comes to help the Jets win the cup. Not saying its a good possibility, but saying it's not going to happen is not based on any fact.
