It's certainly arguable. I think it's a year where it could have gone to any of 3 or 4 guys, including Belfour and probably Hatcher. It's a good example though of how just a few guys voting opinions on one day can change the way people view a player forever. They're doing the top centers list as we speak and with that on his resume he'd be ranked much higher. The fact that he certainly did enough to get it goes unnoticed, had he been awarded it his rep around here would be bolstered immensely.
