'11 because '98 was just a strange year where there was a lot of worthy nominees, not really any worthy winner. So it was bound to produce a result that many would be unhappy with. Lidstrom is only viewed as being robbed because of what he went on to do afterward. At the time, it was any defenceman's race.

2011 on the other hand, Lidstrom was only given the trophy because of his history. Weber was the best defenceman in the NHL. Chara was second best. Having someone win on reputation is always the worst way to win.
