I gotta say, I’m surprised to see Pavel Datsyuk getting MVP recognition.
This makes him a Hart, Lady Byng, and Selke trophy finalist all in the same year.
I don’t think there’s a chance he wins it (though he deserves it) but it’s good to see people overlooked the fact that the Wings are stacked and voted for him anyway.
I also like this “fact” in the NHL.com article…
Ovechkin is bidding to become the first repeat Hart winner since Dominik Hasek led the Red Wings to the Stanley Cup in 1997-98.
