It happens every year, when a guy is #1 from start to finish. The one recent instance that might actually prove my theory backwards is the 2010 Taylor vs. Tyler debate ... as of right now, Tyler Seguin has seen far more success than Taylor Hall has.
Hall has scored more points and in fewer games, so I'd rather have him. But Seguin just happened to be on the better team.
