combination of media bias and bad luck. the year he really should have won it just happened to be the year Karlsson **** out those gaudy assist numbers, and the year Lidstrom won it both Weber and chara had better stats but it seemed the media was giving it to Lids one last time before he retired.
last season he actually had the numbers to be considered but he started the year so poorly and the season was so short, and that coupled with the Preds dismal performance, the media put him out of their thoughts
I defnitely agree with the poster who said he has a better chance now that Suter is gone, as I am sure there were some in the media who thought Suter was better and wouldnt vote for both players or that Weber was only as good as he was because he was playing with Suter
What I am hoping is now that Karlsson has won it once, the next time he has big offensive numbers, the voters remember he doesnt play a lot of actual defense and vote for a more well rounded player
