Jonathan Toews (and his soon-to-form mutton chops, I assume) has opinions on a couple of his teammates' performances regarding said incoming playoff facial hair.
Jonathan Toews said Patrick Kane needs to bring back playoff mullet: "If he's a team player he has to take one for the team." #Blackhawks— Chris Kuc (@ChrisKuc) April 11, 2016
The Hawks have had success with a certain playoff mullet out and about on the ice, and hockey players are nothing if not superstitious...
Toews on Ladd's playoff beard: "He looks like he has his growing all season but that's just pretty much his 5 o'clock shadow." #Blackhawks— Chris Kuc (@ChrisKuc) April 11, 2016
This is why Andrew Ladd was brought back, right? With all the young players the Blackhawks have relied on to fill out their roster, there can be some... struggles, there. Ladd, however, does not struggle. Give Ladd some more time to really get things going, and his beard will be majestic.
And really, that's what's important here. Go beards. (And the one mullet.)
