Claim a myopic homer pick and BENCH him. As a fan you're still happy, as a GM you'd be wise.
You do know Toews is a Blackhawk, right? Look at my avatar.
Yeah, yeah. Just because he's 22 doesn't mean he should be excluded from ATD. In ATD 2010, a soviet forward who retired at the age of 27 was picked. He is not close to Toews when it comes to awards etc., but he has 5 extra years spent in inferior league on Toews. Does that make him better? I don't think so.
That soviet forward was picked in 600s. Acceptable 4th liner in 30 team ATD, and somehow Toews is a bad pick at 709?
That is just example.
Toews is a solid 4th line centre despite his young age. I stand by that. You can disagree, but that's all you can do.
