The Hart has always been somewhat related to the Art Ross (and for good reason), but 2010 was basically like "we're tired of always voting for Crosby and Ovechkin. Someone else won the Art Ross? Let's give it to him!" I realize that Henrik got credit for maintaining his level of play without a certain injured linemate, but I don't know, Crosby was doing it without great linemates basically all year.
