Since 2015-16 when he signed the contract he is second in points only behind McDavid (granted Kucherov only has one less point in a bunch less games). He also has an Art Ross, Lindsay, Hart, 2nd place for Lindsay, 3rd place for Art Ross.
Toews being overpaid, I completely agree with. But Kane is, if anything, underpaid. I do understand that a contract of that size is hard to move which is why I've proposed retention on Kane. But that's not because of him being overpaid but rather to help make a deal and maximize the return.
Also your comment about Marner compared to Kane is very interesting because first off, you fail to consider scoring in different eras. Otherwise you can just conclude that Kucherov>Ovechkin because Kucherov put up 128 points. Secondly, Kane's placement amongst all time players is probably comparable to someone like Sakic by the time he finishes his career assuming he stays productive for an expected amount of time. To put Marner even in the same conversation as Kane, is a very big statement. It may happen, but that's a tough tough sell.</div></div>
You're a homer, there is no rational conversation here. A 23 year old 90+ player is worth more than a guy entering the twilight of his career
