all this passionate thornton vs. jagr discussion. i'll say that's one case where i'd be perfectly okay with either guy winning the hart.

contrast that to '02, when it's theodore over iginla all day every day. or '03 when i see no sane argument for naslund over forsberg. and yes, i side with henrik and, the next year, perry over daniel (though actually, i tend to think the hart should have gone to st. louis, maybe even thomas, in '11).

but lost in all this is poor jonathan cheechoo. sure, he wasn't ever going to score 50 goals, let alone win a rocket, without thornton. but if he'd been healthy, i think he'd have been a perennial 25-35 goal scorer, like james neal without malkin but maybe even better. all told, that's a pretty good player. certainly not "nothing without thornton."
