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.
What's so freaking sad whit that? I don't care how bad he played defensivly this season , others than you, might take in concideration
the fact that he is a physical presence at the blue line, although he hasn't done much hitting this year. Forwards need to keep their head up, AND he is the leading point scorer, thoose things are more than enough for any other fanbase. How many other offensive point producing d-men play physical (have a physical reputation) in this league?
