Really not trying to be biased here but Eberle alone would not be enough for the Hawks to move Toews.
^ This is the best post IMO. Neither team makes this trade unless A.) Toews demands a trade to a cold canadian hockey crazed city. OR B.) The Oilers make the playoff's and realize they can't win a cup without a stong 1-2 punch down the middle. Then make a trade using an area of strength (wingers) Adding a Toews to any playoff team makes them a cup contender. He brings to the Hawks, what Hall brings to the Oilers +++elite two way play. People will soon realize how good Eberle is, and I think that he has 40 goal, 85pt potential. But any trade for Toews Edmonton has to add. The difference in value is not worth it for the Hawks to make the trade unless as mentioned the above A scenerio takes place. Then the Hawks are happy with the return.

You decide Oiler fans:

Hall Towes Hemsky
Pajaarvi RNH Yakupov


Hall Gagner Yakupov
Hemsky RNH Eberle
