Toews and Kane dominated in every respect, throughout the playoffs and at a very young age. Great players making everybody around them, and a whole team, look better. Lets be frank here. Nothing happens in Chicago that doesn't intimately involve Toews and Kane.

That said we all know the Oilers need to get better as a team. But who takes the reigns. Toews and Kane took the reigns and never stopped. Took it all the way to the house.
Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, Brian Campbell are a big difference compared to Ladislav Smid, Jeff Petry & Corey Potter. By having quality defense to get the puck out of your own zone and provide you with more offensive opportunities & possession, it's like comparing apples & oranges.
