I think the Lady Byng Trophy is a bit of "non trophy". I mean, it is not very clear who will win it and based on what. I know, it usually goes to the player who has the best Points/PIM ratio, but the determination for the trophy is this. " player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability".
I mean, when does one of those criterias outshine other? It is always great to get an award, but Byng is the "lowest award" for me, if there is one.
On the topic, i think Selanne is the kind of player that will never get recognized being player like that trophy awards for. Selanne "whines" too much and he also takes fair amount of "stick" penalties. Like tripping, high sticking...
