I wish I could answer this question. I have no idea why the leading scorer isn't nominated. I think the working theory is that a lot of his points came in the last month of the season, but if we can't count the last month of the year then last year RNH should have won it instead of Lando.
Another theory (which I believe is true) is that most of the writers who submit ballots are eastern based and are asleep by the time the Oilers' play.
I guess also there's a difference between "nominated" and "finalist"? But this decision shows how much of a farce this trophy (including the nomination process) really is.
