Nothing wrong with those three choices but it may have changed a few people's minds after they saw Kane score the Cup winning goal. Toews had 29 points while Kane had 28. Coupled with a mediocre showing in the Cup final, I can see how the votes may have changed after Kane scored the overtime Cup winner.
But in all honesty, that is the only season where I can see it making a difference, and even then Toews wasn't a bad choice regardless
My exact thought also, Kane had 8 points in 6 games in the final, including 3 points in the final game and of course the GwG, he may have snubbed quite a few votes had the voting been done after the game, but likewise Toews, Kane or Keith all would've been good choices.
