Not quite sure why everyone is bringing up how consistently great Lundqvist has been over the past 8 years. Why would that be a factor in a seasonal award?
We've seen countless times where, when there wasn't a *clear* favorite for the award, it gets given to the guy with the best reputation. Brodeur won at least one of his Vezinas that way. We see it a lot in the Norris voting too. That's not to detract from the winners, because a guy like Lidstrom was in the conversation every year that he won it. His reputation just gave him a little boost.
