Imagine how ridiculous our team was if we got everyone from Winnipeg and the Manitoba surrounding area
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)
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.
I used to think there was a 0% chance but in an interview over the summer he said something that made me think there was a 1% chance. I can't remember the exact quote but after gushing about Chicago for 2 minutes he said something to the effect of "but you never know with the business side of this sport". Probably just catering to the local media but I'd never heard him even acknowledge the possibility before that.
I personally think theres a huge chance toews ends up here, I doubt he resigns in chicago without testing the ufa market where I think he would get a huge offer from TN. Just think of the money TN could make off the jerseys alone.
Very unlikely Chicago doesn't do everything possible to keep their young captain and face of the franchise who they won a cup with. They can likely offer him more salary than the Jets and in 2 years I think the Blackhawks will still be in a better position to contend than the Jets.
