Not sure if Sid's playoff performance is clouding your judgment, but during the regular season Sid was CONSTANTLY being praised in post-game threads for his two-way play. During the regular season, this was by far and away his best two-way performance of his career. So I'd say based on that, he certainly deserved the votes.

As for the bolded part, I'm not sure what Crosby's two way play from previous seasons matters. He got votes for his performance this season, not when he was questionable defensively in his rookie season.
