Each team has a nominee, and the voters are free to pick from any of the 30 nominees. However at some point the league "recommends" 3 players out of the 30, and those guys basically become the finalists.
I'm quite confident that Max won't even be one of those three "finalists". The league really doesn't want to attract more attention to stupid barbaric hits to the head by oversized ogres on their prized cup-winning big market team. So Crosby will win. Yes, he's in it for a concussion too, but the hits he suffered are far less controversial. And with one "finalist" concussion recoverer all but locked up, they'll find two non-concussion guys to round out the top 3. I'm thinking Lupul will be one.
