I don't know how the voting works but I'm sure there were a lot of Western Conference GMs divided on their voting between Rinne and Luongo. A Western Conference GM is more likely to give a goalie they see more often their 1, 2, or 3 vote whilst all the Eastern Conference GMs have Thomas penciled in as an automatic #1 and then its a dog fight for nom points between Lundqvist, Price, and Ward. Granted they could also vote for a Western Conference goalie but I think it's more likely they'll vote for someone they're more familiar with. I think it was just a numbers game that causes Luongo to sneak in.
