You think Toews and Kane would be out of the playoffs a lot on a team like the Oilers? You think they wouldn't be accomplishing more on this club?
What would the lineup look like with Kane and Toews instead of Eberle/RNH/Hall?

Smyth-Toews-Hemsky
Omark-Gagner-Kane
Paajarvi-Horcoff-Jones
Eager-Belanger-Lander

Smid-Gilbert
Sutton-Petry
Whitney-Peckham

Dubnyk
Khabibulin

Is that a playoff team to you? I don't think it is. A playoff team wouldn't have Khabibulin playing nearly half the minutes, an immobile Whitney, two 6D in Peckham/Sutton and the Swiss cheese that is the 4th line.
