The thing is you are comparing a prime Toews, Kane to the Z and Pasha from nowadays both in their mid 30s.
Man!! You people are super sensitive! Jesus! Toews and Kane just proved they're better than D and Z and you all get mad. You think I enjoy watching Chicago win again? NOPE. But you know what? It's the truth. But Kane and Toews are supposed to better, they were higher picks for a reason. But even as Wings fan I'd take those two over D and Z any day of the week.
If you would have said that Toews is better than Z I'd agree but better than a prime Pasha ? I don't think so defensively they are even matched but in terms of also creating offense and making people go wow how did he do that against other nhl players ? It's Pasha.
Also look at the support core Keith, Seabrook, Hjalmarsen, Hossa and Sharp I mean that's a top pairing and tons of options for loading up the first line or even things out on the second line
Kane isn't even a center so it's tough to compare.
Currently Toews is for sure a top 3 player in the league but ranking him above a prime Pasha is false.
