I agree with this.
If they punish Crosby for missing the last month of the season, even though he was specutacular for the 3 months he did play, and award AO the award for playing lights out for 1 month, but sucking the other 3, then it's a joke IMO.
And agree, writers sometimes have a "what have you done for me lately" mentality and they will see AO with the strong finish and give it to him.
