Fixed it for ya. But looks like Hossa is winning anyway, this series of polls are full of fail.

Come on. It's gotta be Hossa. I know he choked in the finals but damn. He is still and elite talent at both ends. He should've been up there a while ago.

Alfredsson. Him and Hossa are both better than at least 4 guys voted ahead of them..

For a guy who is better offensively, he still scored fewer points this year.

But thanks for coming out.

Hossa is inferior in both capacities. He's a cog, he's not a catalyst.

He can't take a team on his back and get it done himself if he has to.

No love for Patrik Elias eh? Can't believe he's not getting votes amongst this competition. (That's not a knock on them either)

Do we really have ANY Sedin up there, and Backstrom... but no Parise?

Yup, there are 5 guys or so left who should go ahead of Hossa, but it looks like Hossa is going to win. I guess he's still living off his reputation from 3 years ago.

Hossa seemed to do a pretty good job back in 2003 at taking a team on his back, almost getting them to the Stanley Cup Finals. Where was Alfredsson? Playing like a complete dog, registering only 8 points in 18 playoff games. Including a solid 1 point in 7 games performance in the Conference Finals. He, more than anyone else, probably cost Ottawa the Stanley Cup that year with his poor performance in that series, since everyone knew that the Ducks weren't going to beat either New Jersey or Ottawa.

I don't think that even compares with coming up lame in two straight Stanley Cup Finals.

Not even close.

Hossa was one of Pittsburghs best players in the finals and all playoffs last year, and this year he played a lot better than his stats indicated, IMO.
