Intangibles should be a solid addition, when you start hearing "he does the little things" or "what he does doesn't show up in a score sheet" you know the player is struggling to do his job.

And I agree with the other poster, if Toews were European and not a good ole Canadian kid he would get more negative press like Ovechkin. Certainly you could argue Toews has plenty of good equity built up, and that is true, but his play has been awful this series, and he deserves plenty of blame, since he gets all the credit when things go well.
Toews has been awful but as you said he does have some equity built up thus he cant be compared to constant playoff losers like Ovechkin
