When the Chicago Blackhawks locked up Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, they kept one of the best forward duos in the NHL together for a long time. As elite as Kane and Toews are, they have company in the ranks of elite forwards in the NHL.
The acquisition of Seguin to go along with Benn helped Dallas return to the playoffs for the first time in six years. As the linemates continue to improve their chemistry and the team gets better look for the duo to rise the rankings.
The twins/former MVPs have had innate chemistry since they first strapped on the skates in Sweden many years ago. With Vancouver’s recent struggles, the pair rank lower than they would have been in years past, but with Radim Vrbata joining the squad and a change in coaching staff, they could be back among the league’s best this season.
The playmaker and former 50-goal scorer have been linked since the Ducks took them in the first round of the 2003 Draft. The 2007 Stanley Cup champs and 2010 and 2014 Olympic Gold Medalists have been among the league’s elite for years. They will look to add another Stanley Cup to their decorated resumes this season in Orange County.
Since arriving in the Windy City in 2007, Kane and Toews have been turning heads and winning games. The 2010 and 2013 Stanley Cups serve as testaments to how great the duo can be, and with new contracts the sky is the limit as the Blackhawks look to become the league’s next dynasty.
They may play on different lines, but few players complement each other like Sid and Geno. The two centers have combined for three Hart Trophies, the 2009 Stanley Cup and enough highlight reel moments for a lifetime. With long-term deals to remain in Pittsburgh they will have ample opportunities to bring another Stanley Cup to the Steel City.
