Ironically, that is exactly the opposite of the "reason" the writers gave for not giving it to RNH last year - somehow they felt that Landeskog having played 20 more games to get the same amount of points somehow made him better. I remember hearing Damien Cox (idiot) start trumpeting that - Yes RNH had as many points, but he didn't play as many games, so to me that makes Landeskog more worthy....
The rookie scoring leader should at the very least have been a finalist as he has been the last 63 years. As for who should win the Calder, I'm biased and think it should have been Yakupov, but would have understood Gallagher, Huberdeau, or Brodin. But last year? RNH tied for the points lead with almost 20 less GP? It's a travesty that he didn't win last year.
