apollo Posted April 2, 2015 Share Posted April 2, 2015 If you're going to call me a homer - read the facts first. If you still think it, then go ahead... First of all - I'm not saying he should win it or be the first runner up. I think Ovechkin should and Crosby as the runner up (it could go either way but Ovy IMO is more valuable to his team). I am saying Daniel should be nominated and he's the Western Conference MVP. Although it would be nice to see him rob someone of it as he was robbed in 2011 when they gift wrapped the award to some random player... I can't seem to remember his name. I just know he's a certified rat. Anyways... Here are the FACTS: Daniel Sedin is 15th in NHL scoring. Aside from Jiri Hudler, he takes significantly less penalties than players above him in scoring and rarely shoots his team in the foot with an untimely penalty kill. Is the leading scorer on his team that has rebounded from a horrible season last year. This in my opinion is a huge factor. He's led by example and PRODUCED. You didn't have to be Sherlock Holmes to know the Canucks would rebound and the Sedins would return to greatness with that Bostonian nut job fired and Willie brought in. Averages almost 2 minutes less ice time per game than the other 4 candidates I have in my books: Crosby, Ovy, Getzlaf, and Tavares - Example: 2 minutes x 77 games = 144 minutes less ice time, in which he would have more produced more points. So being 15th isn't that relevant. He's producing huge numbers with less ice time than the 4 above players. Leads the NHL in primary assists - is ahead of Crosby, Getzlaf, Tavares, Ovechkin. .. bet you didn't know that. Primary Assist Leaders Daniel 32 Getzlaf 31 Voracek 30 Crosby 29 Here's how I have it for the Hart voting - with Daniel being #1 in the West 1. Ovy 2. Crosby 3. Daniel 4. Tavares 5. Getzlaf I haven't included Dubnyk, Price and Rinne. I don't think a goalie should win the hart unless it's a mind blowing season and the aforementioned goalies all have great stats, but not legendary. Also Kudos to Hank as well obviously... but this year, I have Daniel as our MVP. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
