LA with Quick: 8th seed. LA without Quick: Most likely last place.
Quick or Hank should win imo. I'm fine with Giroux missing it. I'm not fine with Malkin winning.
I'm guessing that's assuming Crosby is healthy?
Cause if you mean you think PIT would make the playoffs without both Crosby (most of the year) and Malkin, well, I don't know.
I think that's the difference. If Crosby had played more games I don't think Malkin's season would have had such an importance as it did. But since Crosby was out everyone was looking at Malkin and he delivered without much support i'd imagine. Giroux on the other hand had a great team surrounding him.
