the main reason i take kovy though has nothing to do with stat sheets (gasp!) he's a team first, warrior type of player. that, coupled with his natural abilities makes him quite a rare gem.
While I appreciate Kovalchuk's new found defensive game, he's still nowhere near the level of Toews in that respect.

Toews is probably one of the five most complete players in the NHL.

And the reason I don't like arguments like the "team first, he's a warrior" type is because every Chicago fan would say the same thing about Toews. What exactly are we proving?
