Reasons to why Toews is a great leader can be found everywhere. He is the captain already. Guys like Lapointe and Stevie Y have raved about his leadership ability. It was a lot of his doing that lead to the whole Hawks team pay there own way to go to the funeral of the Hawks GM's father. This is just a couple reasons.
Completely agree, Kessel is a very good player and I think they have similar offensive upsides, but I'll give Toews the edge on pretty much everything you don't see on the scoresheet.
