(I won't elaborate because it will sound political)
A preds fan was scoffed at when they suggested that if weber ends up in vancouver or toronto he will win 5 Norris but its absolutely true..
I actually heard a interview with a writer from SI yesterday that confirmed as much about Weber. The hockey media pretty much ignores smaller market, non-traditional teams.
I understand the Nobel reference and I completely agree. If awards involve any type of subjective decision making, they are going to be biased. In other words, whoever the voters "like" will when whether they deserve it or not.
