I'm a big Saad fan and I'm happy with his game and happy the Hawks have him - but he isn't in the same stratosphere as Toews. Aside from not being a Selke calibre center, his skills as a winger are all at least a notch below Toews. Toews is one of the best puck hunters in the league because he has the combination of hands, strength and tenacity that allows him to get the puck and keep the puck along the boards and then to make plays. There are few that are as good at that than Toews and the Hawks have another one in that same category with Hossa. Saad is still too easily knocked off the puck or he doesn't keep control of the puck well enough and he loses control of it.

I can see Saad maybe becoming a 60 point player - which would be great - but coming nowhere near Toews potential ceiling which is in the 85-90 point range.
