When you combine this with the fact that he is not a play-maker, and does not make his line-mates better he is the easy choice when it comes trade time.
OK, I think you should dwell on the fact that you're comparing him to Thornton, Crosby, and Malkin (and Malkin can barely be considered a center at this point). How many players in this league stack up to those guys?

Toews' career high is 34 goals, and his highest point total is 69...

And enough with the *ing linemates BS. Jeff Carter centered our two best lines the last two years, and Hartnell and Lupul were absolute studs with him centering them.
