Is the case for Harry Howell really that much stronger than the case for Duncan Keith?
It's very unlikely that Howell has much of a case over Keith but to be fair most of the current guys are still either climbing or in the middle of their peak or prime years.
That being said some of the guys up in round 10, like Howell, Ragulin or Patrick have a very weak case over guys like Keith, Raflaski, Zubov or even Phil Housley for that matter.
The way things are going I'd be very surprised if even 2 of the 4 guys i mentioned even came up with some of the recent trends.
