I'm not keen on Zetterberg getting honorary mention because Lidstrom belongs in that discussion as much as Zetterberg. Personally in the 10-11 season, I'd probably would have gave the Hart to Price, Lundqvist, Rinne, or the winner Perry.
Rinne is my winner for the Hart and Vezina that year, with Z and Ovy as the runners-up for Hart. I put Perry a little lower because although he does have the big gap, Selanne had as many points as Zetterberg (80), and Getzlaf was right behind in an injury-shortened year (76 in 67) with Ryan on their tail (71). That's a lot more offensive support than Z or Ovy had. And Hiller's season was spectacular, far better than the mediocre years of Howard and Neuvirth.
