When voting please take into consideration the massive advantage Halifax has up front. Halifax has by far the 4 best offensive players in the series and Bullard has not been dismissed as the 5th.

Halifax has three scoring lines that will out produce Regina's first line. Reginas first line has to depend on golonka providing the goal scoring and grit for their first line and 70's has not proven he can do either.

When looking over the defense really ask yourself if those 8th and 9th place votes that have recently surfaced are as impressive as they are being made out to be. Is the 14-15th best defesneman that far behind the 8th and 9th? Honestly think about it, rank these 4 defenseman from last year: Pronger, Ehrhoff, Suter and Myers. There norris placements were: 8,12,15,17. Yes when you simply look at an 8th place finish compared to a 17th place finish you would think that there would be a massive gap between defenseman, but there isn't. why can Regina ride out these and milk all of these votes from something that isn't as impressive if you actually put this into context.

In case you were wondering: 2011 Norris Votes

Ehrhoff 8th
Pronger 12th
Suter 15th
Myers 17th

Stop and think, is it really that impressive?
