as we all know, goaltenders RARELY win the HART trophy. At this point of the season, who stands out to us as MVP's other than Lundqvist? Its hard because people will look at us as bias because we are all Rangers fans, but lets be real, take him out of the equation hypothetically or with an injury, and this teams falls as fast out of the playoff race as the penguins are. No one stands out as most valuable to their team than Lundqvist. He has a young defense in front of him and an offense that, on paper, would look decent. We can compare numbers like Lupul in Toronto or Stamkos in Tampa and so on but when it comes down to it, I think writers who vote for the Hart trophy may see eye to eye with us as the season wears on. Lundqvist is impenetrable some nights and as long as he plays consistently down the stretch and the rangers finish where they are now or close to it, not only will Lundqvist win the Hart, but he WILL win the Vezina which I think is as good as his this year.
