Toews has been pretty underwhelming the last couple of years.

He too is living off a reputation but does not get called out on it... Canadian media and what have you.

Two seasons ago when the Hawks were struggling just to make the playoffs Toews was nowhere to be seen and was playing very, very poorly, this was blamed on yet another injury to Toews.

During that time Kane still was putting up the points and dragged the Hawks just far enough to get into the playoffs (with a little help from the Wild)

This year Toews was playing well until he got his concussion... he is getting hurt just too frequently now for my tastes... and his playoff numbers not pretty too look at lately either.. just 3 goals in his past 21 games.

I'm a Hawk fan and love both players but the unending showering of love for Toews is a little ridiculous.. anytime I hear the Canadian media talk about him I just laugh.. he is not a top 3 center in the league like they would have you believe hell.. he isn't even top 5.
