Should Toews Skip The All-Star Festivities?

via Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago,

A Sunday away from the rink gives the Chicago Blackhawks a chance to catch their breath and fully examine Jonathan Toews, who left Saturday’s 5-2 loss against the Nashville Predators in the second period.

Best estimation is the injury isn’t serious since Toews didn’t leave after a big hit or collision. But then again, neither did Patrick Sharp when he went down with his hand injury, which is what Toews appears to have.

The Hawks will give an official update after practice on Monday, but even if it’s a small ding, after Tuesday’s rematch with the Predators they have six days for Toews to recover as the All-Star break begins.

If there is any chance at further injury, Toews should not compete in any All-Star activities. He’s too valuable to the Hawks, no matter how valuable he is to the league.

I wonder if he would face a suspension?

If he skips Ottawa all together, then he better.

Datsyuk had a legit injury that everyone saw when he was suspended.

If Toews doesn’t go, suspend him.
