With option of hindsight, one would always be under influence of "not deserving". You see people, now even more often, talk about Cheechoo's Richard T. like he is not deserving it, while at the moment (and still is) it was legitimate winner with growing goalscoring pedigree, player who started to establish his star status, later destroyed by injuries. Yet with uneducated hindsight he looks like "not deserving". And that's the trophy based on numbers, not eyetest. Can you imagine the mess with Vezina?
