If I had to bet, I'd say over. This team is built to remain competitive for years to come. I think Toews/Kane will both sign 8 year deals, Keith is signed long term with an amazing cap hit, and the rest of the core should be here for at least a few more years.

Plus I like how the Hawks are taking after the Red Wings and drafting well then developing players until they're ready. Yeah they could go after big free agents or trades every season like the Rangers, but surrounding the core with the right depth players has worked out pretty well.

They have an amazing defense returning this year, and if they resign Hjalmarsson next season, that D could be around for another 2 years.

It's a great time to be a Hawks fan.
