For me it's Perry pretty easily, 50 goals and he carried the Ducks into the playoffs nearly by himself with Getzlaf and Hiller out at different key times.

Perry has a good case because of how he almost singlehandedly lifted Anaheim into 4th place in the west, from a fringe bubble spot. St Louis is the same, not for helping Tampa in the standings, but for the unreal chemistry he has with the players on his team, helping them to great seasons.

I'm happy with either of the two winning.

I would prefer St. Louis or Perry to get it, and I actually think Perry deserves it, but I would be surprised if Sedin doesn't win it.

I went with Perry, wouldn't complain if St.Louis got it.

Personally given what the Nucks fans had to say about how they were such a deep team and not a one player team I don't see how Sedin is any more valuable to his team than the next guy

Question, who would you say the Oilers MVP was. I know, pathetic year, but still. I would actually to with Ryan Whitney, even though he played only half the year lol. He was our best player and the only reason we won games early on.

When Whitney was playing and healthy he was honestly a candidate for the Norris and certainly the Oilers MVP but it's pretty hard to give him the overall MVP when he played less than 40 games.

Although... since the real goal of management was to get another lottery pick, I'd say the MVP was the player who was most helpful in achieving that... Khabibulin. A 10-32-4 record with a 3.40 GAA and a 89.0 svpct went a LONG way towards another last place finish and another #1 pick.

I have to give Tambo credit... he was certainly right about Khabi being the team MVP.

I think it has to be Perry, with Swiss Cheese and Ray "Mike Tyson" Emery in between the pipes this guy did more for his team than anyone else. Second vote goes to Marty

You guys are on crack if you think Daniel won't win it.

Art Ross and Hart have nearly gone hand in hand since the lockout.

Top it off with the fact all the sports journalists that vote on this, would absolutely LOVE to write stories about the twin brothers winning the two trophies back to back.



I know you guys hate the Canucks, but it's 99.9% going to be Daniel.

Daniel's chances at winning the Hart this year in my view are actually hurt by playing with Henrik all year(last year Daniel was hurt for a stretch so Henrik was more clearly in the spotlight). They are basically 2 sides of the same coin... one is the scorer (or at least moreso) and the other the setup man.

Perry is much more a solo story in Anaheim this year... because the perception is that he doesn't have a clone feeding him for every point he makes. Sure Perry also has some great players to play with as well... Getzlaf, Ryan, Selanne, Vis etc but I think this year with the run the Ducks made to get into the playoffs being carried by Perry on their back... that's going to be a stronger story than the Sedins coasting into the playoffs.

I think that Daniel will win it and I think that he deserves it. You can twist and turn the formulations as much as you want in that it needs to be the one player that is most valuable for his team. Problem is that if you're a slave to this formulation then you could have kicked out several previous hart memorial winners (which played on teams that didnt actually depend on them...) and instead of these three I would say that Tim Thomas, Lundqvist, Eric Staal, Nick Lidstrom, Letang were actually more important as individuals for their respective teams this year...

Daniel: Art Ross, 10 gw goals and +30 on the best team in the regular season. For me that would be given hart memorial.

I don't even like the guy but he does deserve this.
