Report: Blackhawks Toews and Kane to ask for $12 million annually?
It's believed Kane-Toews initial ask of CHI on extension is around $12M/yr each. They'll end up lower but still could be $10M+ AAV players.

The Blackhawks have made it clear that signing Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews to extensions will be the top priority this off-season. A report from TSN’s Bob McKenzie says the two will ask for $12 million annually each to start off the negotiations.
Realistically, the duo will likely get around $10 million annually as McKenzie also reports. The pair are represented by the same agents and signed identical deals in the past for five years worth $31.5 million.
The two have helped lead the Blackhawks to two Stanley Cups since 2010, and each winning the Conn Smythe trophy.
