How much will they get?

According to TSN Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane will receive identical contract extensions -- five years at $6 million per season -- and Duncan Keith's money will be spread over 13 seasons. Keith's contract is certain to be investigated by the NHL, much like that of Marian Hossa's was, with critics believing it's an attempt to circumvent the league's salary cap. If those figures prove accurate the Hawks will have 15 players signed for next season at a salary cap hit of just over $60 million. This year's cap is only $56.8 million so there'll be some player movement, to be sure.

I'm glad the 'Hawks were able to resign Duncan Keith (assume the league doesn't somehow block the deal, of course).

Keith and Seabrook are the best defensive tandem in the NHL.

It's cliche, but it's true...defense wins championships. Scoring tends to come in bunches, even for offensively gifted players.
