I just love how they make each other laugh at what are clearly inside jokes. And I think introverted Kaner has always been true, it just didn’t fit the opposites narrative that the media was pushing. I also think there’s a different between introverted and quiet. For example, I think with people he’s comfortable with, Toews is loud and excitable and touchy feely - but when he’s in a situation where he’s uncertain, he tends to be calm and quiet and try to exude captainliness out his pores. Does that make him introverted? Obviously it depends on the circumstances and may reflect more a social awkwardness than introverted nature. Meanwhile, Kaner knows how to put on a show and has done so for the media/fans in the past, while around people he’s comfortable with he tends to be quietly confidant and only speak up when he has something to say. Does that make him more introverted than Toews? Maybe. But it’s interesting how in the past both have lived up to their narrative story even though it doesn’t really reflect them. And I like that these days they are more likely to poke fun at that narrative rather than try to keep it up.
