I shouldn't have to sell you the idea that Jonathan Toews is one of the best players in the game. His track record speaks for itself.
He won gold medals at the 2005 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, the 2006 and 2007 World Junior Championships, the 2007 World Championships and the 2010 Winter Olympics, in which he was named top forward, leading Team Canada in points.
In June 2010 he became the third youngest captain to win the Stanley Cup and the second youngest ever to win the Conn Smythe trophy.
He's the youngest ever player to become a member of the Triple Gold Club.
And he's a two-time All Star.
If this doesn't convince you, then watch Jonathan Toews play hockey. He is so tremendously skilled in so many different areas of the game. I would argue that he`s the most dynamic and versatile player in the NHL.
I don't think there is a GM in the league that would not want Jonathan Toews on their team. Without Toews the Blackhawks would be a mere shadow of the team they are. His value to them is immeasurable.
In this slide show I will argue that Jonathan Toews is the most valuable player in the NHL. Enjoy!
(Important note: I am NOT arguing that he is the most skilled)
