Well, yeah anything would damage team chemistry badly - that's why I wouldn't want to trade him at all. But value-wise those are the only three if we had to trade him. They're also the only three players in the league I think are better than him (d-men and goalies included).

Maybe its just the case that Toews is perfect for us while on other teams there may be better fits.
Well Toews has a concussion history himself - he's had at least two in the NHL and three before he got to the NHL.

Who are these players? I'd say Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos (and I know not everyone would agree with me on the second two) but after that I can't think of any better players.
