I really doubt he processes the game at the same speed that toews does. I kinda understood the comparison watching him today, the decisions were good but the rate at which he made them looked very average.

Why?

Is it that unbelievable that players in the future are better than players today or in the past?

Yeah this is exactly what I say to a response like that. Monahan's a top 5 candidate this far away from the draft and putting up huge numbers...Often enough these players get compared to notable nhlers and have decent chances to become stars.

Theres a ways to go before he's refined enough to do all the little stuff toews does nightly though.

I agree with this. There's a difference between saying "he will put up more numbers than Toews" than "he could" or "he very well may".

In my mind...

1. Talent is always relative
2. There will always be superstars

Therefore we will always have a superstar player and there will usually be about 10-15 guys drafted every 5 years that are incredible talents.

EDIT: I just realized that I really didn't respond to your post directly. My bad. But yeah there's a big difference between a 16 year old and a 24 year old though.

Pretty much like the posts above me said, I dont think they are, especially having watched both players a lot. Monahan is only 16 and I've said numerous times that I have a hard time with an NHL player comparison for him. He is such a smart player that he can change his playing style depending on what kind of match up / team he's up against. Toews is just the player he reminds me of the most, both are great at both ends of the ice and have that I word everyone loves to use.

Could he be considered a candidate to wear the "C" next year?

I wouldn't be completely shocked, but I think he will get an 'A' next year with Ceci captaining. Thats what I'd put my money on.

Any update on the injury status of Monahan? He wasn't in the line-up tonight as well.

Caught him live yesterday afternoon. Most people at the game were more impressed by Monahan than Toffoli or Landeskog.
Landeskog is on Colorado, just btw

Kids a stud, top 3 in 2013 if he keeps it up IMO. He's so good at everything when I watch him.

He reminds me a lot of Tyler Seguin, but a bit more physical.

Is he related to Gary Monahan the number 1 overall pick in 1963?

No he's not.

I'll tell ya, as he gets older he really does look more and more like a Toews. That's what he looks like in this league if I could make any comparison.

I know a lot of people have mentioned Toews, but yeah it definitely is a perfect and easy comparison
