    Fair criticism. He blew against the Flyers and Lightning. A LOT of mistakes under pressure. As an aside, it seems like Mayfield has done the same this season. He's carried that torch I guess, lol.

    In the games we played against Vegas recently, it had playoff intensity and reffing. Toews didn’t shy away from contact at all. I think that is part of playing system where he’s rarely put in positions to take a hit to make a play, but he’s always made it when he’s had to.

    Everyone did. It’s like Uwe Boll’s next movie turned out to be The Godfather.

    Even before Girard established himself and that 1st rounder blew up in Ottawa’s face everyone was like “he got a lot for a gun to the head deal”.

    I don't think keeping Toews and trading Leddy was a viable option. Leddy had a pretty rough year last year. Having to lug Boychuk up and down the ice certainly didn't help. There were rumbles that NYI had Leddy on offer several times over the last couple of years, and nothing emerged. I just don't think there was demand. I think a lot of teams see Leddy as an extremely talented skater who has questionable hockey sense. And they're right! Otoh, teams wanted Toews.

    28:44 ice time today in a playoff-style game. Got a really unlucky penalty too on a defensive play, hit the puck away from a forward so hard it went to stands and two minutes for delay of game.

    28:44 was over two minutes more than any other skater from either team.

    Also Toews was the only one with more than one hit from Avalanche.

    Toews rarely takes a stupid penalty, but this one against Wild was one of them.

    So far +3 tonight, which raises him to 2nd in NHL behind Edmundson and tied with Verhaeghe (and MacKinnon).

    Toews in the last two games ice-time of 58:32. These were not overtime games.

    Sam Girard would join the club too with his 30 points, +16 and 23:02 TOI / GP if he was not a goon with 12 PIMs.

    Amazing he’s spending so much time in the box in a season he doesn’t face DeBrincat.

    Horrible game for Toews tonight. He made a massive blunder in that Wild fourth goal.

    Much of the team has looked bad tonight, but holy god this may be the worst game Grubauer has played in a long time.

    10:09 of ice-time in the first period tonight. I wonder how many skaters in the NHL have this season played over 50 % of a period?

    I assume McDavid.

    Devon Toews is McDavid.

    So was Lou forced to make the move due to cap issues or did he not realize what he had? I'm thinking it's a bit more the latter than former.

    cap issues and just looking at the Current roster. I would have preferred to Trade Leddy and Keep Toews. Trotz loves Leddy though and this year he’s actually played well Offensively like he’s capable of. Still would have preferred Toews.

    It was both, he was also forced to make some kind of move.

    Toews has also taken his playing level to whole different level, he really benefits from playing with such great players, but honestly, that works both ways, he is also helping his teammates a lot.

    If I would have before this season stated here in Finland that Toews is without a question having a better season than Miro Heiskanen, I would have been laughed out.

    One thing I'm still amazed about is the ice time Toews is getting. I mean, when you're #10 in NHL in ice time, it can't about something like "well this guy is ok and I'll reward him a bit and maybe he'll survive and...". It is plain and simple that you have to be the #1 choice of your coach, especially outside of powerplay time.
