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.
Playing for O6 teams and sitting in the central and eastern time zones.
He didn't deserve it this year. But the east coast bias is very much alive and well especially with the hockey writers.
