It's high risk but it might work. Toews has this and next year on his 10.5 million cap hit contract. The Hawks are a fucking embarrassment. Toews is an elite faceoff guy and is a tremendous leader. He might have a great effect on Kakko and Lafreniere. If the Hawks will eat half his contract, take back Nemeth and you include Zac Jones, a good center prospect like Korczak thought they might want Barron which I'm not doing yet, also throw in another prospect like Berard, I don't see any reason why Chicago won't do that. It's worth the risk for the Rangers as they are well on their way to ruining Kakko and Lafreniere. Hawks get a D man that can play now, some cap relief and two kids that are probably 2 years away from joing their forward core. You might have to throw in one of our two second rounders. Who knows. I would feel much better with Toews centering Kakko and Lafeniere and taking PP and PK draws even if he comes off the PP once we control the puck.
