The only player I can see winning it is Malkin if he keeps up with his 90 point pace and the Penguins make the playoffs, despite missing Crosby, Letang, and now Neal for a long period of time.

Lundqvist IS putting up not only Vezina numbers, but Hart numbers. Before people come in and say "OMG, Thomas put up the same kind of numbers last year!", just remember Lundqvist doesn't have Chara on his team, and that he's been without Staal almost half a season and Sauer a good portion of it.
I would think Giroux would at least pipe up in the conversation.
