Based on his play this season, I certainly wouldn't call him one of the best all around forwards in the league.

By defintion, you have to be good offensively to be well rounded. Kopitar rarely created scoring chances this year (for himself or others), and most of his points were the result of being gifted coincidental assists.

Anze is playing some of the worst hockey of his career, and shouldn't be considered for any award other than Lady Byng IMO. It's very disappointing.
