The Natives Are Getting Restless

We’ve spent a lot of time reading tea leaves with the Hawks and what they say in the press. You don’t have to decode much to get to the heart of what Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane were getting at yesterday: Kane: “Yeah it’s tough. It’s just crazy that our season’s gonna be over in […]
