Of course the national media in there infinite wisdom never challenged or asked why Pronger was left off the finalist. It bothers me more that he wasnt a finalist then the fact that he didnt win.
If he hadn't slumped hard with the rest of the team, there would have been no way they couldn't have at least nominated him. Because of the slump, much of the evidence for how good he was became subtle as opposed to pronounced... and, you have to remember, it isn't like the voters watch 82 games of every team. They are looking at stats and coverage noise.

His line in 15 December games was 1-5-6 -2. And the problems began in late November, of course. That stretch is why he ended up with <60 pts, and would have been pushing +30.
