I like this award. Too many awards are purely offensive statistically driven and not enough recognize the other portions of the game that are just as important. Anyone who watched Scott Stevens play, Devil or not, and knows that he never won a Norris Trophy would agree with me.
I can't help but think the the playoffs will influence the voting and that will tip the scales in Brown's favor but if it's truly the regular season, I've got to give it to Cap'n Cally who put this team on his back and willed them to victory some nights.
dustin brown was a below-average player for the first half of the season, callahan and doan were solid throughout. i could see it going to anyone of the three but if it's purely regular season i don't think brown deserves it
