Him not being able to unload the slapshot from the point killed us and it could have been a different series otherwise. And I realize that "all teams have injuries" but I've had this injury (and the surgery) and you cannot use your rotator cuff without experiencing a ton of pain....and possibly making the injury worse.
Well the playoffs have no bearing on Norris discussion, so I'm just ignoring them.
I think Chara deserves the nomination (he's just ahead of Gonchar on my list) but should place no higher than 3rd. He had too many bad games -- even when healthy -- to be a true Norris winner.
