Good for David, I'm happy and all but there is a lot of players that need to persevere to get where they are at
St Louis should definetly have won it by the same criteria.
Tim Thomas has been drafted, even if he didn't had it easy after.
I am NOT saying Pacioretty shouldn't win the award, that he doesn't deserve it, or anything of the kind. It's just that his story is less epic than Desharnais's, IMHO, regarding all the criteria that should define the Masterson.
It is a bit annoying that the Masterson is by default the "get back from injury" award. While getting back from a serious injury SHOULD be one of the ways that you could be nominated, there should br diversity in the kind of narratives worthy of said trophy.
