Thank god this was not what I thought it was going to be...
*bracing for the barrage of idiotic comments based on other discussions...both serious and sarcastic*
It is an interesting question...I think that the overwhelming popular majority are going to vote for Burnaby Joe. Most notably because despite the 'incident' last night, he is a more popular figure overall. Forsberg causes intense like or dislike. Its hard to find someone who doesn't like Joe. He's not Mr. Personality, but he's about the least offensive person on earth. Add to that his hard-working character, Conn Smythe run, Canadian-heritage (not trying to imply any kind of nationalistic bias - but by its nature, the NHL is played in North America), and skills which at worst are certainly not anything less than comparable to Forsberg's...and you have my prediction for the winner.
I do however think Forsberg is just so unique and it makes it hard.
I'll have to sleep on it
