Malkin, Stamkos and Lundqvist are your Hart Trophy finalists

Evgeni Malkin, Steven Stamkos and Henrik Lundqvist are your 2012 Hart Trophy finalists, the NHL announced today.

The first two were locks. Malkin scored 50 goals for Pittsburgh and led the league in points with 109, 12 more than the next highest scorer.

The next highest scorer was Stamkos, but he had 60 goals for Tampa Bay, the most in the league by a wide margin.

The Rangers’ Lundqvist will raise a few eyebrows because of the position he plays. The last time a goalie won the Hart was 2002, when Jose Theodore was honored.

Since then, it’s been a combination of Art Ross Trophy (most points) and Rocket Richard Trophy (most goals) winners.

The favorite has to be Malkin. Over Stamkos because the Penguins made the playoffs and the Lightning didn’t. Over Lundqvist because there are those who believe the King wasn’t even the best goalie in the NHL this season.

Snubs include Claude Giroux and Zdeno Chara.

Poll: Who will win the 2012 Hart Trophy?

  1. cruuuzcontrol - Apr 27, 2012 at 11:40 AM

    Well, I guess we know who will win the Vezina

  2. heyzeus143 - Apr 27, 2012 at 11:47 AM

    pens fan here – geno’s poor performance in playoffs should be taken into account, not sure if it matters but the guy just didn’t bring it when he needed to this year

    • biasedhomer - Apr 27, 2012 at 11:56 AM

      It does not matter. This is regular season MVP.

  3. itsallniceonice - Apr 27, 2012 at 11:48 AM

    Lundqvist…Lundqvist…are you kidding me?! Quick got robbed! Absolutely no way Lundqvist deserves this over Quick. Jesus the east coast bias thing must be completely true.

    • t16rich - Apr 27, 2012 at 11:56 AM

      I agree. The stats for the Kings offense backs up why Quick should get the Vezina. I can’t hate on Lundqvist getting nominated, but Stamkos is the name that doesn’t belong. No playoffs, no Hart nominee, in my opinion atleast.

      • itsallniceonice - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:02 PM

        “The stats for the Kings offense backs up why Quick should get the Vezina.”

        I think you have it backwards. The Kings horrid offense is exactly the reason why Quick should have gotten the Hart nod. Quick has nearly identical numbers and without him his team would have been a cellar dwellar.

      • t16rich - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:38 PM

        @itsallniceonice I guess I meant lack of stats. Argument for the Vezina can go to either one. I wouldn’t argue if Lundqvist or Quick won the Vezina, but my vote is for Quick. Hart nominees though, both those goalies deserve a nomination before Stamkos. Playoffs.

    • villi5ed - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:03 PM

      Quick is a great goalie, but plays in a far weaker division than HL. Many more snipers in the east these season than the west. Plus HL got his team to the top of the heap of his conference. Again, don’t want to disparage Quick at all, but your comment reads like the two goalie are not even in the same universe —– and that is simply
      nonsense.

      • villi5ed - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:05 PM

        Moot point anyhow — Frankenstein Malkin wins the Hart going away.

    • bloggersarenotjournalists - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:06 PM

      Doesn’t surprise anyone in the Hockey world

      Wait a sec…hockey writers are doing the voting….

      99% of GM’s are taking King Hendrick over Quick

      And I certainly do not care about the “stats”
      The Kings played all season with 1 philosphy.
      1 Scoring line, everyone else play D.

      Stats are pretty and cute, but try watching the games

      • itsallniceonice - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:19 PM

        Maybe you should take some time to watch some more games. Kings and Rangers play the same kind of tight defense, and the Rangers have much better scoring depth to propel them along easier. Simply put Quick meant more to his team then Lundqvist and it’s pretty easy to see from an unbiased standpoint.

      • bloggersarenotjournalists - Apr 27, 2012 at 2:50 PM

        Not even close
        Torts does NOT play anything like the Kings coaches.

        Why do people open their mouth and talk about things they haven’t a clue about?

        The Rangers had 2 scoring lines and were allowed to play their game while the Kings only used 1 scoring line and the coaches demanded that the other 3 lines dump and chase with 1 man in while they other 4 stayed back.

        Seriously, people here just LOVE to pull garbage out of their ass and call it fact.

      • bloggersarenotjournalists - Apr 27, 2012 at 2:51 PM

        Oh and Im a Wings fan, and you will see when all the unbiased hockey writers hand Hendrick the Vezina

  4. danphipps01 - Apr 27, 2012 at 11:53 AM

    Hang on, do any Bruins fans honestly think Chara played like the most valuable player even on his own team this year? Help me out here – do you guys really think he was more of a snub than Jonathan freaking Quick? Without Chara, Boston would still be a mid-level playoff seed. His performance doesn’t exactly make or break the team, right? Am I being unfair to the guy here?

  5. jimmywho14 - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:04 PM

    Malkin can have that trophy. Giroux is after a more important one.

  6. cruuuzcontrol - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:05 PM

    Lundqvist gets the nod because he was more important to a team that went wire-to-wire as the top team in the East. He fits both definitions of an MVP… Best player on the best team and without him, the Rangers would be scuffling to make the playoffs. The Rangers offense wasn’t worth much this year and they still easily topped their conference. That’s a notch above Quick, and no disrespect to the outstanding season he had.

  7. bloggersarenotjournalists - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:09 PM

    Wait a second….where is Claude?

    “Best player in the world” not nominated?

    LOL

    In all honesty I’d take Claude over Malkin if Im building a team.
    Call me crazy but I dig leadership and grit.

    Stamkos deserves this award

    • napoleonblownapart6887 - Apr 27, 2012 at 1:44 PM

      Leadership and grit eh? Welp, you can have that, I’ll take the guy who had 109 points and was one of the top players on the NHLs top offense.

      Stamkos has an argument, but he won’t get it – without Stamkos the Lightning are probably the worst team in the east. With him, maybe the third worst and still missed the playoffs.

      It’s Malkin’s award.

      • bloggersarenotjournalists - Apr 27, 2012 at 2:59 PM

        Holy couldn’t give a damn about what the team did for an individual award.

        Stamkos was the best player in the league this year

        If you wanna yammer about what if’s and team accomplishments.

        Put Stamkos on the Pens and they don’t miss a beat.

        I hate the argument “what did his team do?” That is a worthless argument. What does anyone do without teammates and linemates?
        Its not Most Valuable player to his team, it’s the LEAGUES most valuable player.
        AKA
        The Best
        Could not care less that Stamkos didn’t make the playoffs, he doesn’t play net, D or on any of the other lines.

        The Oilers didn’t need Gretzky to make the playoffs, and The Pens didn’t need Lemieux, yet they racked up the Harts. Because they were the best.

      • napoleonblownapart6887 - Apr 30, 2012 at 4:56 PM

        I think you’re missing my point a little bit here. I understand (and respect) your opinion and how you got there, but this is my interpretation (and I think the prevailing one) regarding the award.

        It is the player who is of the most value to his team. Those last three words are where I believe our arguments diverge. Since it based on the value to his team, the performance of those teams gets taken into account, and this is where my point lies.

        With Stamoks, the Lightning did not make the playoffs. Without Stamkos, they probably finish dead last, but there is no difference between dead last, and where the lightning finished – they still didn’t make the playoffs.

        With Malkin, the Pens challenged for first in the East, and ended up with home-ice in the first round of the playoffs. Without Malkin, they probably finish in the 7-9 range (SIDE NOTE: those who would point to last year of proof that that isn’t the case are comparing apples and oranges – Fleury was playing his best hockey since the cup run in 09, same cant be said for this year). So without Malkin you are looking at no home ice, and possibly no playoffs.

        There in lies the value TO THEIR TEAMS, and why the award will be taken home by Malkin. Stamkos had a hell of a year and is a hell of a player, but Malkin wins it.

  8. spavs412 - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:14 PM

    Geno by Far was the hart this yr. Playoffs don’t matter for this one guys! Honestly in Philly I would put jagr ahead of cluade this yr. Maybe not the playoffs but in big regular season game #68 was more of a key. Look at the WC when jags went down so did the flyers

    • biasedhomer - Apr 27, 2012 at 1:29 PM

      Jagr is the MVP of the Flyers, because of 1 game?
      Worst logic possible.

    • jpelle82 - Apr 27, 2012 at 2:06 PM

      jagr ahead of giroux is a joke, you cant really believe that can you?

      • bloggersarenotjournalists - Apr 27, 2012 at 3:00 PM

        Just threw up in my mouth a lil

    • jaybertx - Apr 27, 2012 at 8:21 PM

      If the playoffs don’t matter then the pick is Stamkos.

  9. spavs412 - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:16 PM

    And taking Claude over Geno is silly. Us he did have a better playoff series but c’mon flyers fans Geno has a cup MVP rocket etc what does cluade have? Nothing a good year in the NHL put a few of those together and we will talk

    • tackledummy1505 - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:28 PM

      Dude you’re an idiot. We are talking about an award for the year 2012. Not what you’ve done the past 7 years. This is what a team can’t do without. If Malkin was out half the year, I think the Penguins would’ve done just fine. Actually they have, last year even. Penguin fans are so biased. It’s a shame Stamkos plays for a crappy team, but can we give this trophy to someone who doesn’t just score lots of points and actually has a great overall play. A person who can play defense as well as offense. Stop giving trophies like this to whoever has the most points. Everyone knows Malkin can only play 1 zone of hockey. The guy is a tool back in the defense. I don’t think he ever knows how to play defense, just give cheap shot elbows to other player’s heads. This award is crap anymore. They use to give it to outstanding players like Steve Yzerman and Super Mario. Guys who played both sided hockey. Not tool bags like Malkin, who doesn’t even play a full hockey game.

      • jpelle82 - Apr 27, 2012 at 1:48 PM

        you dont watch penguins hockey games do you? malkin is hardly the liability you seem to think he is and a lot of his scoring chances come from takeaways in the neutral zone and near his blue line. i’d even venture to say no one with his talent level has a better stick lift pick pocket move on the back check.

      • tackledummy1505 - Apr 27, 2012 at 4:23 PM

        lol yes, Malkin sits on the defensive blue line, hoping the opponent team turns over the puck, so he can get a breakaway. You’re an idiot and I know what type of game he plays. That’s called cherry picking and hoping for an opponent to mess up. Don’t mistake that for actual defense lol

    • biasedhomer - Apr 27, 2012 at 1:32 PM

      I like how you say a good year. You don’t seem to realize Giroux has been at a 1.20 PPG for the last 175 games.

      • jpelle82 - Apr 27, 2012 at 7:15 PM

        and giroux is less than a ppg in his career. .85 to be exact. malkin is a career 1.23. so what….

      • biasedhomer - Apr 27, 2012 at 11:17 PM

        your point is? My point was disapproving a poster’s assumption. Your reply has nothing to do with what I am replying too.

      • jpelle82 - Apr 28, 2012 at 9:22 AM

        proves he is less than a ppg player, not that stellar. he had one good year and he is still below a ppg.

      • biasedhomer - Apr 28, 2012 at 10:01 AM

        175 games is more than 1 season. If your only argument is the career numbers for a 24 year old player, playing in his 3rd full season, is less than a PPG, your argument is weak.

        This is the 1st year that Giroux got first line minutes. Before, he was behind Richards, Carter, and Briere at center. Giroux has been getting progressively bettr every year, jumping 20 points every year since he was in the league.

        And if you ever watched Giroux game in and game out, you know he is consistent and makes any player around him better. His vision is better than that of Datsyuk. He has been touted as the next Forsberg, and it is showing now that he has the chance to be THE guy on the team.

      • jpelle82 - Apr 28, 2012 at 10:51 AM

        if you want to say he is the best player in the league than he should have those numbers to support it. look at malkin or crosby or ovechkin’s first years in the nhl….then look at your boy. the only people touting him of anything are the people in philly…its a crazy idea but maybe you should read something other than your local newspaper.

      • biasedhomer - Apr 28, 2012 at 12:21 PM

        Now you are just putting things in my mouth. Where have I said he is the best player in the league. He is the best player in the playoffs though.

        All I was proving was that Giroux has had a sample size much larger than 82 games.

        Maybe you should actually read something, instead of spewing garbage. It is not only Philly writers suggesting Giroux is similar to Forsberg.
        In fact, if you ever watched Foppa play (I would not be surprised you have not, considering you are a Pens fan), you would notice the similarities, it’s really not hard to see.

    • pepper2011 - Apr 27, 2012 at 1:33 PM

      Bruins fan. Giroux is the best player in the league.

      Malkins help:
      Staal, Neal, Letang, Crosby, Dupuis, Sullivan, Kunitz (all 20+goal scorers)

      Vs.
      Giroux’s help:
      Hartnell

      Pittsburgh could survive without Malkin; as they did last year and this year without Sid. Philly wouldn’t be in the playoffs without Giroux. He is THAT good.

      • jpelle82 - Apr 27, 2012 at 1:54 PM

        staal, crosby, letang were all hurt for significant time this year which only helps his case for most valuable player…since he put the pens on his back and carried them to 2nd best in the east this year despite the injuries. he beat giroux by 16 pts and played less games and scored 50 goals. He also beat him in +/-, shooting %, shots taken, gw goals, pp pts, pp goals. need i say more? giroux racked up a bunch of secondary assists this year….big deal.

      • pepper2011 - Apr 27, 2012 at 2:11 PM

        and yet; he is still playing and malkin’s not.I really don’t care. As a Bruins fan and hockey fan; Giroux scares me more. Yeah – they were all hurt, but even so- there was more talent around Malkin even with all Pitts injuries. Last year they were without sid and malkin and still a playoff team. If you removed Giroux from Philly they wouldn’t be. It’s most valuable. Giroux is more valuable than Malkin. It’s not a shot at Malkin- he is still a hell of a player, just not as valuable to Pitt as Giroux is to Philly. don’t believe me? who would have won the series if Malkin and Giroux both were out?

    • bloggersarenotjournalists - Apr 27, 2012 at 3:03 PM

      Malkin can Disappear for a week
      Ive yet to see Claude disappear a single shift

      Sorry, I did effort and consistency

      Malkin can be petulant

  10. Stiller43 - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:18 PM

    Well this one seems obvious. Geno baby.

  11. tackledummy1505 - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:23 PM

    lol not surprised Claude Giroux got snubbed. Flyer fans know that the NHL hates the Flyers. Shoot we wouldn’t even be in the league if we didn’t bring a ton of money and TV revenue with us. Got the GM snub and the Hart Snub. Now I’m waiting for the rookie snub. Does anyone know if that came out yet? In the end the Flyers will win the two trophies they can’t snub us for. lol GHL (Gay Hockey League), for the posers they always have up for these awards. I’m surprised Crosby wasn’t up for the Hart as well since his coming back made the Penguins so great at the end of the year. lol what a joke

    • jpelle82 - Apr 27, 2012 at 2:00 PM

      he wasnt nominated because he wasnt comparable in stats. even if lundquist was left off, quick, karlsson, rinne would be ahead of him. and yes matt read did not make the calder conversation either, there were better rookies with more pts, +/-, etc like nugent hopkins, landeskog, henrique. you must not follow hockey

      • tackledummy1505 - Apr 27, 2012 at 4:26 PM

        Yes I don’t follow hockey lol. I’m sorry I have a job and I can’t be glued to every award nominee that comes out. What do you sit in front of your computer every day hoping to see a Penguin get nominated for an award, so you can pleasure yourself lol. I know the Flyers get snubbed for every award. You act like I’ve been through this for the first time. The last time I was shocked a Flyer got an award Lindros won the Hart trophy. I don’t care about the awards, it’s the same old song and dance. When we win the cup, that’s all that will matter. So take your Nugent Hopkins and keep hoping that small market team can produce something here in the near future, Mister I follow hockey every day of every minute lol

      • jpelle82 - Apr 27, 2012 at 7:25 PM

        you just sound foolish, you live in a bubble. i dont blame you for being excited about the flyers, but dont critique the league if you dont follow it. conspiracy theories about how the league hates philly is just retarded, especially doing it on a website hosted by the company that owns your team.

    • icedog97 - Apr 27, 2012 at 2:12 PM

      You sound bitter.

      I love Flyer fans…even when they win they aren’t happy.

      • tackledummy1505 - Apr 27, 2012 at 4:29 PM

        I’m not bitter, just not shocked. Tired of seeing the NHL slobbering all over Penguin players. Their tool bags and always will be. It’s going to be great to watch my young Flyers team beat the ever living crap out of those babies, year in and year out. The best part is, the Penguins had to be absolutely horrible through the 90′s to have a couple good years, the Flyers have made the playoffs almost every year since the early 90′s except for the 2006 campaign. So other than 1 year, I’ve seen good to great hockey. Guess it’s time for the Penguins to rebuild again, this way maybe you’ll catch the Flyers at a bad time again in like 10 years lol

  12. charlutes - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:26 PM

    Explain Chara as a snub. Its an attrocity if Chara beats Karlson for anything. Um hi, Karlson scroed almost 80 points as a defenceman. Case closed and if u argue this u are crazy.

    • danphipps01 - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:31 PM

      Yeah, but that’s not really Hart-worthy on its own. That’s just a lot of assists from a high-minute one-way defenseman. I don’t think Chara should even be a mention, but let’s be honest, he provides a lot more depth than Karlsson in his much more complete play and shutdown ability.

      In any event, if any defenseman deserved it, it’d be Weber. With either him or Rinne having an off night or out of the lineup, the Predators slump. He’s one of their highest-scoring players. He’s their top defenseman on the PP and the PK. He does everything. And he’s great at it.

    • tackledummy1505 - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:33 PM

      Yes, why isn’t Karlson up for this as well. Like I said they’ve turned this award into whoever scores the most points in a season. It’s no longer MVP. Malkin can only play offense and he’s a dirty player. NHL just loves their favorites lol

    • pepper2011 - Apr 27, 2012 at 1:19 PM

      No, NO , NOOOOOOOO- Kalrsson should not have even been nominated for the Norris. He is very good offensively, but he is nowhere near Weber or Chara, or two of the guys on the Rangers or Suter as a defenseman. This is a joke that he is even nominated. Learn the game and the award. HE DOES NOT KILL PENALTIES> HOW CAN HE WIN THE NORRIS.call me crazy I want the best defenseman in the league to be able to play D. His coach doesn’t even think he can.
      shorthanded time on ice per game:
      Karlsson: 0:33 +16 – 78pts
      Chara: 2:43 +33 – 52pts
      Weber: 2:16 +21 – 49pts
      not saying he isn’t a very good player, just not the best defenseman. He is the best offensive defenseman, but if you need to shut down Giroux, Crosby, Malkin, etc.. would you want Karlsson, Chara or Weber? If you had a PP in the last minute? Karlsson. Chara should win the Norris; I would be ok with Weber, but Karlsson would be a joke.
      Chara and weber are closer to Karlsson offensively than Karlsson is to them defensively.

      The James Norris Memorial Trophy is an annual award given to the defense player who demonstrates throughout the season the greatest all-round ability in the position.

  13. malkinrulez - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:53 PM

    Malkin had acl surgery in feb. came back and dominated months at a time. Usually takes one full year to be fully healthy. Hart winner easily. I agree didn’t look the best in playoffs but let’s give credit to flyers they wanted it more. Some of you have short memories conn smythe winner for Pens last cup! By the way love the comment about Stamkos playing defense!

  14. GenoPringles - Apr 27, 2012 at 12:57 PM

    My man Geno finished the season with a plus 18. He must of played some d. But I guess he is still not a complete player like Girioux…. (+6) for the year. Look I know Geno defecated all over himself in the post season, but this award is for the regular season.

    • jelliot1978 - Apr 27, 2012 at 1:55 PM

      +/- is not a stat that shows if you are a good defensive player it is a stat that shows you were on the ice for more even strength or short handed goals scored by your team than against. A more telling stat of defense for a forward is PK time and defensive zone draws sans icing. If in your world Malkin is better defensively than Giroux then there is nothing to say because logic doesn’t rule your world.

      With that, Malkin should win but Giroux should have been nominated as he was a top performer all year long and is a better 2-way player but the Hart has long since removed the 2-way player from consideration unless they score a lot of points. Not sure how many times he was nominated but Stevie Y should have had some consideration at some point in his career.

      • jpelle82 - Apr 27, 2012 at 2:16 PM

        if he is so good 2-way then he should have been selected for selke candidacy….he isnt even on the list. you guys are blind, just because the flyers play him at the high point on the pk doesnt mean he is good defensively, it just means no one on their team is any better in that position.

  15. lsxphotog - Apr 27, 2012 at 2:01 PM

    Stamkos: a break-out season…if that’s even possible considering how well he has played the last two. He single-handedly kept his team with hopes of a playoff berth, only to be eliminated late in the year. Without him, the mess that was the Tampa season would have been absolutely depressing. He stepped up as a leader, and adult, and has become the face of the league. He’ll do the same thing next year.

    Malkin: It can’t be ignored that he stepped his game up this year and took the place of their missing starts…that really does define an MVP if you ask me. But can you really be the most valuable player when you complain as much as he does? JMHO

    Lundqvist: The most consistent goaltender of our time. Fact. Every night he is Henrick Lundqvist. He is the foundation of his team and much to do with their killer run this year.

    I think it should be Stamkos because he gave his team hope and raised their spirits. He was the only reason that team felt they had a chance and he grew into an even larger depth role…that’s an MVP if you ask me.

  16. bobhpine - Apr 27, 2012 at 2:11 PM

    That little ginger had barely half the goals Malkin had, 16 fewer points and more games played…Giroux definitely leads the league in bucked toothed bovine ginger looks

    • danphipps01 - Apr 27, 2012 at 3:28 PM

      And humiliated Penguins. =D

  17. bobhpine - Apr 27, 2012 at 3:18 PM

    According to the flyer moron fans the season started in the second week of April and ended last Sunday and those were the only games that mattered…the NHL illuminati is out to ruin filthadelphia! On with the conspiracy!!

  18. tcclark - Apr 27, 2012 at 3:54 PM

    Stamkos shouldn’t be here. He deserves the Rocket Richard, not the Hart.

    Giroux should be here. He led a team that was young and injury prone, and was third in points. Oh and he actually plays defense.

    Quick should be here. I think Lundqvist was the better goalie considering the teams he had to play and the fact that he’s on a bigger stage, but Quick was more valuable for his team because the offense was terrible. Lundqvist is the Vesina, but Quick should be a Hart finalist.

    I think the finalists should be Malkin, Giroux, and Quick. I can’t decide who deserves it the most, but Malkin’s third. he just wasn’t as valuable. he definitely deserve the Art Ross though.

    • jpelle82 - Apr 27, 2012 at 7:34 PM

      why is giroux in the conversation? because he had 65 assists? come on. there were 20 other guys with more goals, more game winners, better +/-. giroux got half his points on a potent flyers pp.

      • tcclark - Apr 27, 2012 at 9:14 PM

        the guys with more goals can slug it out for the Rocket Richard. This is the Hart Trophy.

        Also Giroux scored 38 points on the Power Play and he had 93 points. That’s definitely not half.

        Giroux took a team that traded it’s captain, traded it’s best goal scorer, lost it’s new captain and future hall of fame defensmen, and started 8 rookies for most of the year and brought them to 103 points and the 3rd best record in the east. Giroux makes everyone around him better. Just ask Scott Hartnell. What did Stamkos do? Score a bunch of goals? They’re important but he needs to play on the defensive side of hockey more.

        Giroux had four less points than him and played 130 more minutes shorthanded. That alone should make him a better candidate.

        playing shorthanded minutes doesnt mean anything. no one talks about giroux for the selke trophy, he isnt close to guys like bergeron, hossa, kesler, datsyuk when it comes to defense. you homers from philly are stuck on this idea that because he plays on the pk he must be a good defensive forward. its just not true. kovalchuk plays on the pk, does anyone say he is good defensively?….no. giroux plays less average minutes than stamkos, kovalchuk, and barely more than malkin. for a guy who is so “good” on defense, he should be getting more minutes then and their pk wouldnt have been so bad this year. giroux had 44 blocked shots this year…malkin had 41. and malkin doesnt play the pk….wake up philly fans.

        stamkos gets in because of 60 GOALS. goals win games. this isnt the selke trophy we are talking about. its the hart. and the hart goes to guys that win games like guys who score goals and stop goals.

    And yet Philly hasn’t won anything in years! Guess just making the playoffs is good enough in philly! Congrats!

    60 goals, 97 points, +7. That should be enough for a nomination. Its not like Stamkos is going to win it.
