He should realistically have been a Hart finalist, but instead finished 16th (Ovechkin was 15th).
Both Sedins and Kesler finished ahead of Z (and Ovechkin), which is ridiculous.
Daniel Sedin finished 24 points ahead of Zetterberg and helped lead his team to a President's Trophy. How is it "ridiculous" that a player who also won the Ted Lindsay award would finish ahead of Zetterberg in the Hart voting?
And Ovechkin? He didn't deserve to be anywhere near the top of the Hart voting that year.
