There is no bias towards Habs players when it comes to winning trophies in the NHL. Go back and look at what Theodore did for the Habs that season. He was as deserving as Iginla would have been when you look at how well they both played and what they helped their teams to achieve.
By the way, Galchenyuk COULD have been selected as one of the nominees for the Calder this year. His numbers were quite impressive when you consider he was just 4 points behind Yakupov while playing 2:14 less per game with less than half the PP time that Yakupov had. Galchenyuk was also a +14. You think if Galchenyuk played another 100 minutes on the ice he might have gotten a few more points? You know, it isn't like Yakupov outscored every other rookie by a significant amount.
Man, you guys don't have to be bitter towards the Habs' players. I said it would be equally acceptable to me if Yakupov would have won and you all act like I said Yakupov sucks. It isn't my fault, nor the Canadiens' fault that Yakupov was left out of the Calder voting. Find someone else to blame.
Subban had a great year, I'm not downplaying that at all. Despite what you say, Theodore shouldn't have won the Hart that year. Hell, Sean Burke was the most valuable goalie and that is undisputable. The Habs media has more votes. You use the last Norris winner being in 88-89 as evidence? When did the Habs have a top 10 d-man in that time. Same with the Calder, when have they had realistic nominees prior to Gallagher this year?
