Anyways, regardless of what nominal "line" he is on, I would be willing to wager he will be among the top 2 centres in ice time (if not the top). He will also definitely be playing centre, there are many others that will be moved to the wing before Toews.
Oh he has tons of offensive upside, just not on the level of Crosby, Giroux or Stamkos. Toews is perfectly suited for 3rd line. Excellent FO man, great offense and probably the best defensive forward Canada will ice.
He's a lock for center (as is Crosby) and I don't see them moving both Stamkos and Giroux to wings.
