Makin (sic) was definitely a force this season, but Pittsburgh is that type of team that would still have found a way to win enough games even without him.
But Lundqvist's value I think is indisputable. Without him, we likely would've been a 7th or 8th seed, possibly even worse. Looking at it objectively, and what the Hart trophy truly stands for, I'd say Hank deserves it.
Given that the Pens played the vast majority of the season without Crosby, and a significant part without Letang, I don't think that's true.
