Makar edged out Vancouver Canucksphenom Quinn Hughes and Chicago Blackhawks forward Dominik Kubalik.

The 21-year-old racked up 50 points in 57 games for the Avs while averaging 21 minutes per contest.

He did, but the analytics favor Quinn. QoC, oZone/dZone starts, shot metrics, etc. I thought it might give Quinn a bit of an edge.

Fair enough, but saying QH was robbed is quite the overstatement. I was hoping QH would win it too but you could make a case for either of them and not be wrong.

Like many others, I was expecting this outcome.

 

But it really just feels so wrong.

Makar is a fantastic player, but Q. Hughes just laid the groundwork for what will be a legendary NHL career.

 

Makar I look at and think, "man, that guy could win a Norris one day!"

Quinn I look at and say, "man, that guy could be the best player in the entire National Hockey League one day!"

 

 

 

Makar COULD WIN a norris one day......Quinn WILL BE A PERENNIAL Norris favourite year in and year out

Either way they're both amazing young talents.
