I can see why some would prefer Gonchar at #4 but I have too many biases at play Burrows's Hart votes in '76 give you an idea how valuable he was to the team - pretty much unheard of from a defensemen of his style.

Honestly I'd be disappointed if Letang doesn't pass Carlyle when all is said and done (he could do it without winning a Norris), he's just that talented. I feel the only ways it doesn't happen is if injuries keep rearing their ugly head or he's not here.
