From what I've seen Turris has great vision on the ice, is a great passer and finisher, and can play a physical game. Toews may have been younger his freshman year, but he had a much better suporting cast withe the likes of Stafford, Zajac, Oshie and Duncan around. Toews freshman year team could spread the wealth offensively whereas the Badger's offense usually lives or dies by Turris' production. It's no coincidence that Ben Street is enjoying a career year playing with KT.

Overall I think Toews is a better player. I don't expect Turris to do as well as JT his rookie year in the NHL...but then it's too early to tell. Both players are pretty similar in their collegiate and international careers.
