Sorry, I disagree.
Both aren't playing well, I don't care how pts Kane has, his lack of back checking and defense isn't helping just as much as Toews inability to score.

Maybe Toews should just forget about defense and just concentrate on scoring. At least he wouldn't get ridiculed because he would be potting some goals.
yea 3 pts(1es), 0 goals in 8 games from your top center isn't a problem at all. And food for thought: http://www.behindthenet.ca/nhl_stati...34+45+46+63+67

Furthermore, nobody should be expecting Kane to be a shutdown defender, that's not his job nor should it be. People expect toews to play good defense and get involved offensively, so far he's done one of those and been laughably inept at the other. Toews' offensive game so far has been much more disappointing than Kane's defensive game AINEC.
