A highlight that comes to mind immediately for me was in Toews rookie NHL season where he undressed 3 or 4 NHLer's and then the goalie. He was a skill player in Jr and also did some pretty eye popping stuff at the WJC. Monahan, IMO, just doesn't have that. I think he'll probably be more of a Bergeron than a Toews.
And don't get me wrong, that's not a bad thing at all.
