08:10 AM ET 04.17 | If it were up to an informal panel of 25 NHL head coaches, the Hart Trophy (if there was one each in the East and West) would be no contest in the West. The overwhelming choice for Hart Trophy MVP consideration in the Western Conference was Chicago Blackhawk captain Jonathan Toews. The only other player the Western Conference coaches had remotely close to Toews was Anaheim centre Ryan Getzlaf, with Chicago's Patrick Kane and Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky getting mentioned but nowhere close to the top two guys. Toews also topped Selke Trophy consideration as the best defensive forward in the West, ahead of Detroit's Pavel Datsyuk and L.A.'s Anze Kopitar.
