Toews, Nash, Parise - 3 of the most overrated players in the league.

Toews is a great 2-way talent but IMO his overall offensive game is lacking when compared to guys like Kopitar and Bergeron. Even Backstrom was a point/game player when separated from Ovechkin for parts of 2011-2012 season.

His defensive game is on par with Kopitar/Backstrom when they're healthy. It's below Bergeron/Zetterberg/Datsyuk.

Offensively Z/Dats out score him with 3rd liners like Cleary and Abdelkader as W's.

Backstrom creates offence more effectively. Bergeron produces less but with lesser W's.

His entire career Toews has played with some combination of Havlat/Hossa/Kane/Sharp as one of his W's. It's amazing he doesn't produce like the aforementioned C's. Kopitar plays in a system less high-flying than CHI's too. He's shown in similar systems that he can easily produce as well.
