I think the difference between one of the best defensive forwards, and someone who's average/above average is pretty big.
It also happens to be more the Toews has ever gotten, in his whole career.

What we're trying to say is that 0.91 ppg with Kane, Hossa and Sharp being rotated through his line and keeping up excellent defence is not as good as 0.94 ppg playing with Butler, Greening and Michalek, with good defence. Plus, making those players look like stars.

And you act as if Toews single-handedly put the team on his back and carried them to the cup final. TEAMS win cups, teams with players like Kane, Hossa, Sharp, Keith, Seabrook, Byfuglien.
