Both are true, but why is he the only winner from the Blackhawks?

But some of you hockey fans who are a little longer in the tooth (I'm looking at Gordon H) will say "um, I remember watching Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita both win the trophy twice!"

But you hockey fans have faulty memories.

Explain why Kane is the only Chicago Blackhawk winner.
This isn’t my guess, just correction on how many actual received this trophy.

1946: Max Bentley, Chicago Blackhawks
1954: Al Rollins, Chicago Blackhawks
1965: Bobby Hull, Chicago Blackhawks
1966: Bobby Hull, Chicago Blackhawks
1967: Stan Mikita, Chicago Blackhawks
1968: Stan Mikita, Chicago Blackhawks
2016: Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks

Remember, this is a riddle. The guy is playing games with us.

Because the rest of them who won, won while playing for the Chicago Blackhawks

Prior to 1986 they were the Chicago Black Hawks... after the spelling changed to Chicago Blackhawks.

New riddle:

Glacier sends daria video of Ye being interviewed by Lex Fridman and says "I just watched this entire video."

daria says, "ummm, the video is 2 hours, 26 minutes and 2.827999902329292929287439438372929 seconds long, and it was posted online 1 hour and 41 minutes ago, so haha that you watched the entire thing before sending!"

But Glacier had watched the entire video before sending it.

How?

Note: If daria ever reads this and is confused, the above conservation is a guess of what would have happened had Glacier sent daria the video.

I know a guy who listens to all of his podcasts at double speed, so he has provided me with the inspiration to guess that the video was watched at 2x speed before being sent.
