Those guys aren't Leetch, MacInnis, Niedermayer, Lidstrom, Stevens. McDonagh can win a Norris, he also may not, he's what 23 years old?
The fact that he was able to have a couple of good years shows the offense is definitely there. He's not as good defensively as McDonagh but he's better offensively. McDonagh will never put up enough offense to win the Norris. It just won't happen and I love the guy.

I see McDonagh topping out in the 13-15 goal range and that won't cut it. The Norris is basically given to the best offensive defenseman now and I think while McDonagh is a #1 defensemen he won't put up the numbers to be a Norris winner.
