I don't believe that Chicago should slap the C on his Jersey - Toews is no doubt one of the best captains in the NHL, because he leads by example, is determined and also doesn't fear calling his team mates out when he doesn't think they're playing to the best of their abilities - even in front of a camera. (
But I do believe that Kane is one of the better players in the game. Yes, he is inconsistent, but then, from what I have gathered, the Hawks did have a hard time last year with various injuries.
Goals like that - and according to a Goalie Forum I can't find immediately at the moment, they are like, almost impossible to save - they win games. And he did show that he is a great player in yesterday and today's games, with his game winning goal yesterday and the assist in today's finale (even though they were completely thrashed by Canada...).
Well, anyway, my point is:
Kane and Toews are my two favourite players, and I think that the latter is better suited for Captain duties than the former - not at least because of his Off-Ice behaviour, which is simply not Captain-worthy, I'm sorry.
(Yes, he has mellowed in Switzerland. But will this behaviour stay once Mom Kane is gone again and alcohol and parties are just a tap away?)
Well, and I'm also sorry if I have misused any words - I'm a German exchange student, so my English may be not correct at all times
