Maybe any voters who voted for these 2 got any other votes they made for other trophies disallowed as well?

Anyone know about this?
They wouldn`t disallow the votes. The list above is just the top 20. Usually there`s about 40 or 50 different players that get votes for the Byng and Selke. It would take forever to list them all. It`s also too bad those two writers didn`t take it seriously.

Only two defencemen in the top 18 Hart votegetters. Even in the new NHL, it looks like the writers still won`t give blueliners consideration for MVP.
