To CHI: David Toews
To NYI: Future considerations
Even though I have been giving teams average grades for the players we have yet to see much in the NHL, I have to give Chicago a higher mark for acquiring David Toews, the younger brother of captain Jonathan Toews.
If David becomes even a quarter of the player his brother is, he's a great addition. Plus, he should be able to develop quite well alongside his brother, and there is always the possibility of moving him to wing to play on his brother's line; the brothers would probably have great chemistry.
New York Islanders: C
The Islanders on the other hand, have to get an average mark since we don't know yet what they will yield in return for Toews.
However, considering how well his family member has done in the NHL and in international play, there is a good chance that they let go of a very valuable potential asset.
