here's what i think, broken down in to three bullet points:
a healthy Toews: Hawks in 6
a rusty Toews: Hawks in 7
Toews in, but Smith stays hot: Phoenix in 7
i'd be lying if i said i wasn't worried about this series, but i think (or more accurately hope) the Hawks will prevail. gotta have Toews back though for me to stay confident.
I wasnt sure how the Hawks power play was lately but from what I saw in past playoffs with Toews healthy it was world class with all that top end talent.

I like this series though, a lot. mainly because its not the Wings. Best of luck to both teams.
No offense Scotty that made me laugh. Every year you take the Yotes. Now I'm worried.
