Makes no sense for either team either way.
Youre underrating Toews here. He's just a notch below the very very best centres in the world. He's highly skilled, gritty, great defensively, a good leader, and plays his best when it matters the most.

Did Crosby win best forward award at the Olympics? No, that was Toews. He also won the Conn Smyth. Eberle played well at the WJC in clutch situations... But then again, so did Toews. Eberle has a lot to prove, and even though he'll likely average more points a season, he wont come close to controlling the game the way Toews can, impacting the team on the defensive side of the puck, playing physical, etc.
