Sedins for the King Clancy?

There's been a lot of talk lately about the various individual awards the Canucks might be in the running for this year, including the Art Ross, Hart, Lindsay, Vezina, Selke, Jack Adams, and the Conn Smythe (). One that I haven't seen mentioned is the King Clancy.

From wikipedia: "The King Clancy Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to the National Hockey League player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and who has made a significant humanitarian contribution to his community. No player has won the award more than once over its 19 year history, but players from the same team have won it in different years. The winner is chosen by "a special panel of representatives" from the Professional Hockey Writers' Association and the NHL Broadcasters' Association.[1] Players from Canadian teams have won the trophy nine out of twenty times that it has been awarded."

With the Sedins' $1.5 million donation to BC Children's Hospital, along with all their other charitable work, you'd think they'd be up for this award. I don't believe anyone has ever shared the award, but since it's not entirely hockey-related, I don't really see a problem with it. If they had to pick one, I suppose it would be Henrik due to the "leadership qualities" stipend.

Thoughts?

let's be reality,

if it's not a Canucks clean sweep of all the major NHL hardware, it will be proof of the voters' Eastern bias.

If they weren't already front runners for the Hart and Art Ross then sure, otherwise no.

When did they make that donation? If it was after the last Awards, than maybe.

During the Telethon, they talked a lot about how the Sedins had inspired others to make contributions to BCCH, including Michael Buble and the Canucks themselves.

As much as winning the Art Ross and the Hart would rock, its stuff like this that makes me extremely proud to cheer for our team.
