I'm not sure why the Blackhawk fans seem to be the most insecure bunch on here. They have a fabulous team and really seem to worry when everyone doesn't recognize it.

What's really questionable are these so called "Intangibles" = "Invisible" because it doesn't really exist.

Faceoffs? being A Captain? lol yeah he's pretty weak on his skates, is that an "Intangible"?

One of the better players in the game right now. Let's see how he does over the course of a full season though.

How is Toews not respected? If anything, he enjoys too good of a reputation. He was on the 4th line on Team Canada, thereby escaping any kind of real match-up, and he scores 1 goal the whole tournament. Clutch!

Toews is a great hockey player but let's stop making **** up for why he's actually the best. With the team he's on, if he's as good as people say he is, he should be challenging for the Art Ross trophy every year.

It really doesn't matter. I just wonder what HF boards' attitude would have been to the 90's Avalanche/Stars/Wings/Penguins and 80's Oilers/Islanders. Maybe they'd all be overrated and picked to choke in the playoffs too, who knows?

Using Toews' Olympic performance to discredit him may be the most ridiculous thing I have ever read on the main boards.

You're a Canadian. I assume you watched the games. Did you really miss who he matched up against? I can assure you it was quite "real."

You sure about that? He may have started out on the 4th line, but that line became the team's best and most important by the end of the tournament.

Speaking of "making **** up"

Getzlaf is not better defensively and hits are a meaningless stat, the definition changes millions of time per season. The Sharks players' (only team I've seen more than 10-15 games of this year) hits stats are completely off.

I think what he meant was that Toews is legtimately top 15 in the NHL, but on HF, people say "top 5 in the world" when it's far from deserved.

And I didn't quote him but lol at the Hawks fan who said he's 4th behind Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos. Each of Karlsson, Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos, Weber, Datsyuk, Ovechkin, Chara, Lundqvist, are undoubtedly better than him.
