It would have to be an absolute unbelievable overpayment to get Toews out of Chicago, and this proposal is not an overpayment.
Same was said about Mike Richards before Flyers dealt him albeit to slightly lower extent. Not saying this will happen but I don;t see how this is not an overpayment when Jets arguably give up their best player, 2nd best d-man, potential #1 C(if all goes right), and very high 1st round pick. That package is worthy of garnering even the best players outside of Stamkos and Malkin in the league,
