I for one think Niedermayer was completely ripped of in 06/07, just plain and simply ripped off, the guy just totally outclassed Nik in pretty much every single statistical department you can think of, on top of that a Conn Smythe and and a Stanley cup.

Pure Favoritism right there.

Pronger would've won it last year if it werent for his injury around Late Decemeber, the guy was on pace for 85+ points, playing as good defensively as his Hart Trophy, Norris wiining season of 2000.

You have to argue atleast 1 of his wins are totally undeserving.

But IMO 2 of his wins are "Tainted"

Also Rob Blakes 01" season could really be argued as well.

A better question would be how many times was he robbed.

Uh, that's absurd. Your spelling of "Statistical" speaks volumes here. Niedermayer was good defensively that year, while Lidstrom was as usual, perfect in his own end.

In all of his wins, he was very deserving, although arguments could be made that Pronger would have won it had he not broken his foot, or other cases. However, in none of the cases was it "robbery".

In fact, a large case can and has been put together for Lidstrom deserving another trophy the year Blake won the Norris.

It's Nicklas freaking Lidstrom.

Yes I am biased like no other but the guy is a defensive icon.

Loving the poll btw, if you don't think he was robbed you were a Wings fan and are not worthy of having your opinion taken seriously.
