If the Canucks win the Cup this year, are you OK trading the twins?

It's stupid to ask fans if it would be cool to trade away not only star players but fan favourites.

I Stanley Cup would be nice too, of course.

Ummm, the cap is pretty much the only reason. Chicago wasn't rebuilding, they had Kane and Toews coming off ELCs which bumped their salaries up by about $10 million.
Chicago tried to do it. I know cap is one of the reasons but maybe they just wanted long term security. They had the cup anyway so maybe they're thinking the fans wouldn't mind losing stars after winning the Cup.

You don't repay the kind of loyalty and commitment the twins have given this team and province by shipping them out.
