If he keeps up his scoring pace, he'll be a nominee. Norris is a pretty big reputation award, especially in a year where there is no clear front runner. Fortunately for Kronwall, his reputation around the league is that he's better defensively than Mike Green or EK.
If he keeps playing with Ericsson and not looking like an AHLer defensively he has a legit chance. It's the sad truth. Voters put a lot of stock into numbers without having to watch him every night.
He isn't anywhere close to deserving a Norris, but he needs some legit challengers. Weber's points are struggling but I think he'll be a candidate regardless. Who else stands out? OEL, Pietrangelo, Chara. That's about it. Obviously, I could list 10 guys more deserving than Kronner but as long as he's at the top of scoring he'll get a reputation nomination.
