In response to the OP, if I were starting a franchise today and had to pick a forward to build around (which I don't think I would; I like going from the net-out) I would take Crosby, Malkin, Datsyuk (right now), Ovechkin, and Tavares before Toews. I would even put Getzlaf, and Giroux at about the same level. Granted, I'm a fan of Toews, but I just think there's too much emphasis in this argument about him being the main and sole reason for Chicago's recent success.
