Hamhuis, for several reasons, just didn't wow them enough. You look at his points. They are not impressive. Time on ice, not impressive. Nothing stands out but his on ice play, which is exactly what they probably couldn't experience. I think if they had watched him play this year, he'd have definitely been on the list.

Honestly, how many players have a pokecheck that is not only replayed shortly after the fact, but several minutes after the fact, and several days after that fact.

I've sheen crushing open ice hits see less pub than that breakup.
true, but then why is God's son phaneuf on the list then?
