Wow I don't like these young guys being captains. Isn't there somebody better on the Hawks that could take that role for a few years until Toews is in his mid 20s?
If you are ready for a leadership position what does age matter? Toews has his head tied on better than most 15 year vets.
“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
We all knew Toews would be captain eventually the day we drafted him, but for him to take the reigns at age 20 is amazing. There is no doubt in mi mind that he deserves it. His game on the ice and his deameanor off the ice, its a perfect fit.
We have other players that couldve taken the role of captain but there really is no reason for delaying the inevitable. Looking forward to seeing toews as a blackhawk for the next 15 years along with kane hopefully.
Toews? The one that just left college? The one that didn't even play full season with the Hawks?
Dumb, dumb move.
Campbell would have made better choice. And thats saying something.
Your from New York, which means you've probably have not seen the Blackhawks or Toews play with the exception of maybe one or two times plus some youtube highlights. I would reserve that type of judgement if I was you.
I am surprised to. He isnt Crosby or Lecavlier but he has the potential to be as good as Lecavlier. He is a great player but being named captain is a lot of pressure. IMO Campbell deserved but he just signed with Chicago.
