The Nobel is the most bogus of all...

(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.

The fact Annie Hall beat Star Wars is the proof that award shows are bogus.

You have to go back to the early 80s to find a Norris winner without great offensive stats. Flash and hype are easy to vote for over positioning and technical play.
