ya, some people just don't belong on the trophy and H sedin is one of them. I have always thought both are great player and have gone on record as saying they are underated in the past. However they just don't belong winning the scoring race, something is just very wrong about that.

I think they had massive career years a long with a great deal of the nucks. They will return to earth next year.

it's too bad OV didn't play 82 games or he'd be running away with this thing...

he they tie in points do they share the Trophy? or would Ovechkin win based on goals?

Meh. They were 2nd and 3rd overall picks and finally have an elite/superstar season.

Good for them (no sarcasm).

I just hope Hall/Seguin become elite faster.

Tonnes of respect from me. I don't even mind if he wins. He's had a great season. and like others said, if daniel wasn't injured for 19 games, who knows he could have had as many point as AO if he played all 82.

anyway i was just watching the highlights and my goodness that was a sick goal and pass! i love what is said on TSN on the highlight, "wonder twin powers activate!" haha brilliant line.

And what if the Sedins played in the crappy Southeast division?

people know AO is an electrifying game breaking talent, clearly one of, if not the best player in the world. But playing in the South (L)East division does inflate his point totals to some extent.

If the Sedins were down there, 150 point season for Henrik and 130 for Daniel!

They're good.

We hate Calgary, but recognize Iginla is good.

Heck, I always thought of the Sedins as versions of Hemsky, with a little less dangle, and more cycle.

The thing is, is that the Sedins feed off each other better than any other 2 players in the NHL. Just imagine if there was 2 Ovechkins on one line.

But seriously.. Ovechkin played what, 12 less games than Henrik? It's nothing special that Henrik is in a race with Ovechkin. Had Ovechkin played all 82, this discussion would not be here.
And beating out guys like Crosby and Malkin in scoring is something to sneeze at?

I actually like seeing someone different win it, even if it is a Canuck. It is well deserved too. The games played argument is a little lame since Ovechkin only has himself to blame for missing those games.

Obviously the Sedins aren't as good individually as OV or Crosby, but the two of them together have absolutely mind-blowing chemistry. If Crosby had an elite talent on his line with that kind of chemistry instead of third line scrubs he'd probably get 150 points.

I agree. It's refreshing see a different player win it year after year.

For the first 20 years of my life, the ONLY players to win it were Gretzky Lemieux and Jagr. It made hockey pools boring, and there wasn't really much of a scoring race.

No Canuck ever deserves a trophy from here on out because they play for the enemy.

You heard it first.

One would score 60 goals the other would score zero.

I always thought the Sedins were very good. In the past they would dominate us, but not other teams so much. this year they put up the points against all the teams and deserve to be at the top. Sedin put up all these points in the western conference. Think about that one.....http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/statistics/?sh...7&sortdir=desc shows the next 6 players after him in the scoring race are all playing in the easy east.

Unless the NHL introduces a "Princess Trophy" to the player with the lowest hit/game ratio.

I just noticed Henrik is credited with 13 hits over 82 games

Is Cindy good for 8 points against the Isles tonight? Didn't think so - we have our winner!

I agree. This is definitely going to be his career year and that's about it. It's like Thomas last year.

the whole "race" is lame. yeah, Sedin might win - with a 10 game handicap.

thats 12% of the season. pretty large chunk.

Ovechkin still shreds that dudes face in Henrik's career year. WELL deserved on his part, anre much respect, but worrying about it as some "even race" is kind of goofy.

Ovechkin vs. Boston tomorrow on NBC down here.
he usually shoes up on prime time games. 3 points back? i bet he at least ties him.
Except you forgot to factor in Ovechkin actually played the same amount of total minutes this season as Henrik Sedin. You also didn't factor in Ovechkin plays over 5:00 a game on the PP to Henrik's less than 3:30 minutes with the man advantage.

Sure doesn't hurt playing with Backstrom, Semin and Mike Green either.

Didn't help Henrik's cause any that his twin brother missed a quarter of the season...

Let's not even get into the fact the best team in Washington's division had a -22 goal differential and missed the playoffs. Atlanta, Carolina, Tampa Bay and Florida are all brutal teams. Doesn't hurt playing 24 games against those 4 weak sisters of the NHL...

Add it all up and there's more to it than Ovie missing 7 games to injury.
