My beef with your "He was on a stacked team" line is Sakic, because Sakic was the man, team or no team.
But Sakic had a better year than Hasek. You can harp about Hasek's team all you want, but the fact of the matter is, they were one of the better defensive teams in the league. Them not having a top scorer is irrelevant to their style. They were a team that tried to beat you by a single goal and yes, Hasek was their franchise player. But it is a lie to say they were a terrible team carried by Hasek. They were excellent defensively.
I never disputed the fact that Sakic didn't deserve his trophy, I just said Bure and Hasek should have been given more votes and lemieux shoudlnt have been runner-up based on half a season.
