The fact that the comparisons are being made was brought up to Toews during a FAN 590 interview and he was asked what he thinks of them. “I think you’ve got to take it with a grain of salt,” Toews said. “I mean, I think there’s many situations where our team success in Chicago could hit a rough patch and myself and Kane or whoever else normally gets the credit for that could take most of the responsibility. So it goes one of two ways.
