Mid-Season Awards in Bleeding Blue and Green A blog by Jason Chen in General Posted January 16, 2011 We will never see Girardi win the Norris. Same goes for Edler. If either even get a third place vote I'd be ecstatic. It's rather unfortunate that the award has almost been deteriorated to "defenseman with the most points" award but that's the way she goes. I'm still appalled how many people think Byfuglien deserves consideration, even though it's quite clear he's not even the best defensively on his team. My picks have been unconventional and somewhat controversial (intended... to spark some conversation) but hopefully I've shown enough that the logic seems sound (if you've managed to plow throw all those words). Cheers. True. Although if Mike Green can't win a Norris, neither will Byfuglien (hopefully), so I don't think we have anything to worry about.
