Selke Trophy

The serious contenders: Patrice Bergeron, Datsyuk, Marian Hossa, Toews.

Also considered: David Backes, Andrew Cogliano, Boyd Gordon, Jay McClement, Derek Stepan.

My personal belief is you should be a very good offensive player in addition to a defensive stalwart. In hockey, possession of the puck is the best defence, and, if you're one of those guys who can't do anything with it, are you really helping your team?
When the Rangers were talking to Colorado about O'Reilly, Sherman asked for Derek Stepan. New York said no. Now we all know why. Stepan took a major leap this year.
