JT getting some more love...

I know how some of you feel about Eklund but he surmises that with Crosby missing the rest of the season Tavares could make a late push for the Hart Trophy. Honestly I think that's a long shot, definitely not an E5 lmao, but hey nice to see him getting some more recognition in hockey circles.

With the recent play of the Caps I think Ovie will now be the front runner. I predict JT in the 3 spot.
On a unrelated note I hope everyone realizes that Capuano will also being getting votes for the Jack Adams award. I can see him finishing 3rd also. Disturbing to say the least.

This is all I could read up to:
Quote:
Last night against Philadelphia, Tavares was the best player on the ice for either team. He far outshined Philadelphia's Claude Giroux, who entered the season as one of the players expected to be in the Hart Trophy discussion but has underachieved a bit by his standards.
Best player? Not that game (and that is a good thing) Giroux he is right but, whopity do, thats almost easy to see that Claude has underperformed.

Quote:
To be honest, in past seasons, I thought Tavares was a pretty one-dimensional player and maybe even a little bit soft. Not any more. He is a bonafide NHL superstar now, even if he's not in the top five in scoring. Even with Alexander Ovechkin and the Capitals' incredible turnaround after a couple tough months, I'd place Tavares over Ovechkin in my MVP pecking order this season.
Pretty one dimensional, I could only say that in year one and even that is a stretch. But to say that in past seasons (<--plural) is wrong.

The fact that Ek is going out on a limb here, after I have seen a few guys over the past year start to praise him. Way to go Eklund! Jump on that band wagon!

What a doofus. Stay with your horrible predicting Ek.

IMHO

But with that its nice for people to give John love.

I would like to see him be a real Contender for it. I just don't think he will be there at the end. I hope i am wrong

Here's the thing, I'm not a big Cappy fan HOWEVER if your outside looking in and see our roster and the fact that we weren't supposed to do anything like what we are doing right now....A lot of people are going to give atleast some praise to the coach, that's just how it is. I would believe if we end up in 6th or 7th he will get some votes for it which is mind blowing but probably the truth.

I doubt it. every season someone brings up a Coach for a team that should have "sucked" Saying he will get votes they should not even be a playoff team etc. yes he might get like 5 votes. However nothing close to what the winners will get.

Ovechkin has a better shot of winning imo, and is playing way better than Tavares right now.

OV is scoring more impact and important goals than Tavares right now, and he is leading his team in their charge to a playoff spot. We can not say the same about Tavares, but he still has time to lead.

I think JT leads the team just fine. His play has gotten more physical over this recent stretch. He's been grinding it out in his own end and has still been producing a point per game it seems (minus back when he had the flu).

The team wouldn't win this time of year just riding Tavares, they need all the different lines rolling, and he's committed to winning no matter what he has to do. That's a great example to set.

I still think it goes to Kane. 4th in points, 5th in goals. He's been consistent and dynamite the entire season, unlike the other candidates.

Best team in the league (30-5-4). The Hawks would still have fewer regulation losses than the Penguins even if Crosby never got hurt.

Plus the Hawks were the story for the first half of the season by not losing in regulation. It put the NHL on the national sports scene for a little bit, which was especially surprising coming out of the lockout and I feel it helped speed up the 'recovery' from it. It has helped him get the press and he hasn't faltered all year.
