Elias is right in the mix with the likes of Toews, Datsyuk and Kopitar. Moreover everybody tend to forget here that Toews was getting an insane 64.7%, 62.1% and 58.8% offensive zone starts for the last 3 seasons. I've got nothing against Toews and god knows he's a capable 2-way center. But getting that much offensive zone starts is quite helpful to pad your total points and Corsi numbers.
So you're suggesting he's closer to the top 5 centers in the league?
