If players were actually chosen based on one season and reputation never played a role, I would have no argument. However since reputation does play a large part, I'll feel like Lundqvist is being screwed. I bet Bob falls back into obscurity next year.
Like another poster stated, It's an annual award and Hank doesn't deserve it this year. Also, as great as Hank has been since coming into the league in 05/06, he doesn't belong in the same sentence as Brodeur as a goalie and that's a fact!
