dawes has been one of the top goal scorers 2 years in a row...so imo the thing that hurts his chances of being mvp is the fact that kootenay isn't a very good team...individually dawes could be the best players in the league, but the mvp will most likely go to someone on a better team since winning is a factor.

either way the main point is that dawes is getting respect and recognition from the hockey world...
