Comparison falls apart for me there.

Also Chuckie is good at getting back but sometimes looks a bit lost in the defensive end IMO.

That'll come along with time but it's wishful thinking to see him being as good as Toews on the defensive side.

I'm excited to see some nice snipes from him this year....that goal in the playoffs was what I was waiting to see all year. Lethal shot.
He can dangle, but he prefers to play a much more direct and simplified game. You used to see it more from toews as a rookie. But I agree that the comparison is strange.
