Toews is a better player that Datsyuk, or at least as good. Going forward, every team would choose Toews over Datsyuk. This board wouldn't.
Messier = 1.07 PPG player.
Jagr = 1.22 PPG player.

Numbers don't lie, as you said yourself. Gretzky and Lemieux are untouchable, Messier not so much!

"every team would choose Toews over Datsyuk" And I suppose you have spoken to every GM in the league? I think alot would take Toews over Datsyuk but that is because of the age differential, if they were both 34 I bet no one would take Toews.
