This. Niemi and Nabokov have been strong, but both have never been the best.
Bob deserved it this year. The year Nabby pitched the shut-out for the one period in the all star game, I felt he was the best that year. Still think Nabby deserved the V.
Hopefully, Niemi will continue to play this well and consistently for us for next few years. If he does, our future is brighter and he should win it eventually. Being a westie, he may need to be extra consistent (get into top 3) for few years before voters will give it to him.
