    This is exciting. Glad his hard work is paying off

    They might as well give him the the Masterton trophy right now!

    Glad to hear that. It was so hard to not be very worried because you rarely see a player just go MIA like that.

    Considering that fans have been told not to speculate and to respect his privacy, I can't help but think that the timing of this announcement is an attempt to change the conversation from the horrible sexual abuse cover-up that is dominating any conversation about the Blackhawks.

    no matter what there wasnt going to be a good time to release this since everyone will just assume its a distraction whether it was today or in a few weeks

    im glad toews is feeling better. while hes right in saying it technically wasnt covid, it definitely contributed to him feeling like shit. i see it like when youre driving home a little drunk youll be able to make it no problem most of the time but if you hit a tree it all goes to shit. covid is the tree.
    One day I will quit fantasy hockey, today is not that day.

    no timetable set. still hoping to play this year. wonder what his ADP will be with all this. Have to think he could be worth a late round flyer in most settings

    I know you know way more about the Hawks than I do, but Toews did a long interview with the Athletic in late June. Are there really calls right now to respect his privacy? He already came out with his diagnosis and full story about his missed season over a month ago. Just curious if I'm missing something as I haven't been keeping up with Chicago for awhile...

    My comment was made in June. Toews hadn't said anything about his health till right after the sex abuse scandal news came out. Maybe the timing is not related but the Hawks are very PR-conscious and have a history of releasing stories to either stay in the news or changing the conversation.
