Crosby's MVP case goes beyond 103 points...

42% of every even strength goal scored by the Penguins has one thing in common: Crosby is on the ice for it.

I took the liberty of looking at second assists as well, which are super important, but let's squash the "Secondary Sidney" argument that Caps fans floated across the interwebz years ago.

Crosby for Hart, and it ain't even close.

What about Giro? He lead his team out of the basement and didn't have to cry, whine, dive or complain to the refs to do it.

I think be more interesting question is ... does no one in the NHL care that the top scorer will have around 105 points and possibly the next closest will have 90 or less? they need to do something about scoring...goalies with like 940 sv %....

yeah I feel like it's a trend nobody wants to talk about...Are they icing a better product than they were in the early 2000s? I think so, but the 'quiet dominance' of the goaltender is really changing the game...how many 'athletic' saves do you see in a given game...a few maybe...Fleury provided them all in the shootout last night, afterall...but the SV% numbers are getting a little out of hand...

I like what you write Jesse, but this award is given by people that write about hockey, not people who understand it.

Does gyro meat have a name? I thought the sandwich all assembled was called a Gyro, while the meat was a separate component with a different name?

First time I noticed it was when Brodeur came into the league. Was there any goalie at the time that had so many pucks disappear in his equipment? It still needs to shrink and aspects of it designed to act like extra catching gloves need to go. And the league needs to stop allowing goon squads to dominate in the playoffs by clutching and grabbing. I guess nothing ever changes.

Well it can be different kinds of meat.

i'm going to be really interested to see how the press manages to get hype trains going for Giroux and Getzlaf. Somehow, they'll screw Sid out of MVP. I just know it!

Brodeur's always had pads on the small size. At least with respect to his contemporaries....

Barrasso used to use a junior size glove, I don't know why. I assume maybe the weight helped.

I think Sid wins it easy. There is no case for Giroux. At least not over Crosby. There isn't much of one for Getzlaf.

The funny thing is that the argument for huge pads is safety, goalie protection, etc. Seriously...I don't remember goalies in the 80s and 90s getting killed by stopping pucks on a daily basis. :roll: Such a crock.

That's because he was a Carnie, you know, small hands, smell like cabbage.

Pretty crazy to think Sid hasn't scored more than 110 points in 8 years..or a better way to phrase it, it's been 8 years ( :shock: !) since his 120 point season..and he only has 10 more ES points this season than he did his rookie year..

Goalies should go back to wearing those plastic masks that Jason from Friday the 13th wears.
