Kopitar is a fine defensive forward, but I still don't think Kopitar is Selke worthy.
For this year, I would agree, but he's only 25 and his time will come and he will take one home. But this year the nominees are all very good defensive players. Bergeron has always been good and until last year, didn't get the ink for it. Toews is probably the most complete player in the game, and Datsyuk is Datsyuk.
I read in March that Toews was leading the league in takeaways 'no close second' they also mentioned his blocked shots being at the top of hte list and his defensive Zone faceoffs wer ehigh. Those are (esp takeaways) critical areas that are taken into consideration
And what East Coast Bias??? Two of the nominated players are in the West. Conf....
Maybe the bias isn't on their end.
