No Toews has not had as many "concussions as Crosby" - not to mention Crosby is one good hit away from absolute retirement....

Crosby will have a career similar to Lindros (as far as injuries or concussions)....

Lindros couldn't skate with his head up and Crosby just abuses his body when he plays....

Both were/are elite "generational talents" but both were not the smartest guys in the the book either...

Toews is a guy that can play 20 years effectively weather it's first line now or playing 3rd line (while teaching other players skills) 10-15 years from now.

The only time you will see Toews do something as stupid as Crosby physically is if its to win the Cup...

That's another reason why you don't trade Toews for Crosby...
