Whats the alternative letting them walk and go back to penny pinching? The truth is both will get their money it's either from the Hawks or someone else. Save for Crosby, Stamkos there is not one player I would taker over Toews guy just has the intangibles. Kane on the other hand to me is not worth that much but the market dictates the prices. Like I said both would get maximum terms from their hometown teams so their asking offer is already 2 million underpaid I don't think they are going to go even more down maybe 11 but even that might be pushing it
The alternative is them, as "team" players, not handcuffing their team and not asking for a ludicrous amount of money. It's not about the Hawks, of course they won't let them walk, but the onus lies with the player and agent.
