Yes, Handzus has 36 points, but only 8 of those are goals. If he had 15 goals and 21 assists, then he'd be in the running.

I hate to diss on Zeus and I like Zeus. But the NHL writers association are a bunch of idiots and they use the same voting formula and criteria every year.
Spot on. Mike Peca, John Madden and Kris Draper all won it the first time they scored 20+, Lehtinen reclaimed it when he scored 30. I'm not saying those players didn't deserve it, but I don't think any of that is coincidence.
