But that simply has not happened yet.
Kane has consistently outscored Toews. The reason the numbers look at as close as they did is because Kane had one really off season (11/12)...where he was playing out of position much of the time and recovering from wrist surgery.

Toews may be the more complete player...but Kane is obviously better offensively.
