Especially since Toews didn't miss a beat when Hossa went down and he was playing with Saad and Frolik.
Toews is better right now, however offensively Tavares probably has the edge. Chicago is the best team in the league. They have 4 allstar forwards in Sharp, Hossa, Kane, and Toews. Toews has incredible talent around him. They control the puck better than almost any team in the league. Don't you realize Kane helps Toews een if they aren't playing on the same line? Toews doesn't see other teams top defensive units every game like Tavares does.
Tavares carried Moulson, and especially Boyes. Boyes was beyond awful, infact he was our worst forward outside of marty reasoner. Give Tavares one of Sharp, Hossa, or Kane and who knows what happens, but his output would likely improve significantly.
Both players are great though, and I would be thrilled to have Toews on the Islanders, and as I said Toews all around game is probably more valuable right now, but lets wait and see what Tavares can turn into when he gets a few more players around him.
