Pittsburgh fans must be really driving up the percentages in this one because there's no way the poll should be as close as a 54/46 split.

Based on one season. Toews has never had 40 goals or 80 points. Of course, defense, faceoffs, intangibles don't show up in point totals.

Quite right. Toews also doesn't play with the best player in the world.

Looks like TSN voters think the same way as most HF members as things relate to "what have you done for me lately."

It's also because everyone looks at the G,A,P stats, sure Toews will never lead the league in scoring, but you won't find a better overall center in the NHL, great 2 way player who wins a ton of FO and is one of the most clutch players in the league. That stuff doesn't look as pretty as 40 goals, even if in often cases it's more important.

The whole thing is pointless though since Crosby is on there. As someone already said he's the best player in the world, so he is definitely the best player under 25. I don't see a reason for the poll at all.

It is ridiculous that this is even close. Toews is ten times the player Eberle is.

Eberle is flashy, and it's a Canadian website. I expected this.

Haha, if Eberle was even close to Toews, then Edmonton wouldn't still be the doormat of the NHL.

It's a joke that Eberle won, but Karlsson should beat Giroux.

karlsson's a beast, but i'd take giroux over him.

giroux vs. kopitar is tough, tavares got screwed over being paired with stamkos, neal vs toews was a good one, but pretty lame eberle beat toews

crosby should win no doubt. why no kane?

ha ha ha...no way toews was ever going to win a TSN poll against Eberle

i'm not saying eberle is better than toews - he's not. i just mean that the That's Hockey watching crowd here in Canada simply wouldn't vote for toews over eberle...ever.

on what basis? b/c he's better or b/c you think ppl in canada watching tsn will vote for K over G? Keep in mind the TSN ongoing "under 25" poll isn't really determing who is better...it's determining who canadians watching That's Hockey in the middle July will vote for

i think there's a good chance that G wins...if nothing else I doubt the voting pool for this contest (which, i assume, heavily consists of people for the GTA and lower mainland...just going by population) will vote for a Sen. but we'll see!

Because I think Karlsson is better/has the higher ceiling.
